We already know LG is scaling back its smartphone efforts, but that doesn’t mean the company will be out of the game completely.
According to a report from ETNews, LG is planning to introduce the V30s, a device that shares similar DNA with the V30 but features one key difference: an AI-powered camera similar to Google Lens. Some of the camera’s key features will include the ability to identify products, scan QR codes, and translate text.
The report goes on to say the V30s will look virtually identical to the V30, though there will be some internal changes. The device is expected to ship with 256GB of onboard storage, doubling the amount found in the V30. It would seem with more advanced AI, LG thinks users will snap more pictures, thus necessitating the higher capacity.
As for other improvements, ETNews’ report is light on details. It’s unclear, for example, if the V30s will feature Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 845 processor, or whether it will come with more RAM. Additionally, it’s unclear if the AI-powered camera will come with a higher price.
LG’s new AI features will have to be mighty impressive to do battle with the likes of Google Lens and Samsung’s Bixby. We’ll learn more details when the V30s is announced at Mobile World Congress later this month.
