LG V30S aka V30 Surprise Press Renders Leaked – MWC 2018 Launch

LG says that this mode uses algorithms to brighten images by a factor of two for better-looking photos without noise. In a way, these are stop-gap phones before LG is ready with the proper high-end flagship phone for this year. Those are the only hardware changes here, and they certainly aren't worth a new name. After series of leaks and rumors, LG has introduced the successor to its V30 flagship smartphone. The only difference is that the V30S+ has 256GB internal storage.

Attendees of MWC 2018 are encouraged to visit LG's booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 26 until March 1 for more information on the LG V30S ThinQ.

The firm revealed that the device will still have the same Snapdragon 835 processor as last year's model, but packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Both the phones support expandable storage up to 2TB via a microSD card. On the hardware front, the LG V30S is almost identical to last year's LG V30 despite the "S" in its name, retaining the 6-inch OLED display, the dual camera setup, the 3300mAh battery capacity, and the Snapdragon 835 system chip. This narrows down to 538 pixels per inch, so it's pretty sharp given the display size. The primary sensor has 16MP resolution, ƒ/1.6 aperture, and wide-angle lens.

There's a primary 16MP camera on the back with that 5MP low-light sensor alongside, and also an 8MP front-facing camera. The dual camera at the back are a 13 MP main snapper and a 2 MP assistant and the front camera is a 5 MP.

The front-facing camera on all V30 devices is a 5-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 and a field of view of 90-degrees. It is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery. It will retain the IP68 water resistance as well as a 14 MIL-STD 810G rating for toughness and durability as determined by the US Department of Defence.

The focus, as promised, is on artificial intelligence (AI). Google had also announced that it has partnered with a few smartphone vendors to enable deeper integration of Google Assistant, much like what Bixby does on Samsung phones. LG is experimenting with a new release cycle, with the V30S ThinQ.

The V30S is also extending LG's existing list of device-specific Google Assistant voice commands to be able to trigger the new camera modes. Wireless charging is also supported.

The phone has Vision AI ad Voice AI. It brings some new camera modes onboard like AI CAM, QLens and Bright Mode.

The smartphone comes pre-loaded with a Vision AI that further has three camera elements AI CAM, QLens and Bright Mode - all aimed at improving photography experience for serious and casual mobile photography enthusiasts. Each mode would apply its own effect on the subject for a better image.

QLens can automatically scan QR codes, initiate an image search or provide shopping options including where to purchase the item for the lowest price and other similar products that the customer might find of interest. It also features the ability to detect and describe the landmarks in the frame.

Timberwolves' have 'hope' surrounding severity of Jimmy Butler's injury
Entering Friday night, Butler led the league in minutes per game, but sat out the All-Star Game to rest his body. He planted his leg in an ordinary move, but there was some contact from Nene to Butler's knee moments before.

Voice AI makes use of the QVoice tool that allows the device to perform over 50 functions. AI, both in Vision and Voice, category makes the device different from the standard iteration of V30. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates from MWC 2018.
