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

The V30S represents LG's new strategy of quickly releasing minor upgrades to flagship phones, rather than releasing devices on an annual schedule. These are the software aspects which we mentioned earlier and contributes to most of the changes which have been part of the LG V30S ThinQ.

The device is the first "ThinQ" handset from the South Korean manufacturer, launched at CES in January manifested into voice commands and visual aids through the camera in the V30S ThinQ. The V30S is an iterative update to the existing V30 and not the true next-gen smartphone.

According to TelecomTalk, LG's Vision AI is integrated into the default camera application in the form of three camera features: AI Cam, QLens and Bright Mode. Currently, the AI CAM differentiate between eight categories including portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset.

The Chiefs will be trading the two-time Pro Bowler to the Rams barring any unforeseen setbacks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Los Angeles also has the option to pick up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal that is worth $9.5 million by May 3.

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. Perform an image search with QLens to see matching or similar images of food, fashion and celebrities or detailed information of landmarks such as buildings and statues.

LG has unveiled the new V30S ThinQ and V30S+ ThinQ smartphones in Barcelona, ahead of the start of Mobile World Congress.

LG doesn't appear to be launching a significant phone during MWC this year. The difference between the LG V30S ThinQ and the V30S+ ThinQ lie in their inbuilt storage.

Trump's proposal to arm teachers galvanizes both sides of gun debate
Some parents News 12 Long Island spoke with agreed, saying that a student could possibly wind up with a teachers gun. And also video games. "That's good", Trump said, alluding to Cruz.

The smartphone is fitted with a 6.0-inch 18:9 QuadHD+ OLED FullVision Display with the screen resolution of 2,880×1,440 pixels. The smartphone comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with 6 GB RAM. While the V30S ThinQ will include 128GB storage, the V30S+ ThinQ will have 256GB storage. In the rare event that does happen, the microSD slot provides even more storage, up to 2TB. It features a dual camera setup having 16 megapixels sensor with f/1.6-aperture, 71-degree wide-angle lens, OIS, EIS, PDAF and 13 megapixels sensor with f/1.9 aperture, 120-degree wide-angle lens. The front camera is a wide-angle 5MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture. Some of the other features included are 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC support, HDR10 support, Google Daydream, fingerprint sensor and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Technology. The device is also IP68 water-resistant so you don't have to worry about that.

The LG V30S ThinQ has been announced in two new colours - Moroccan Blue and Platinum Grey colour options.

While LG is the first major company to unveil a phone at MWC 2018, in a way it has done so because it doesn't yet have a true flagship to show to the world. If we manage to get a long term review (if it makes it here) you can be sure we will be testing out all the AI functionality and comparing them to other manufacturers' offering. If it can truly harness the power of algorithms to make low-light photography better, that's good news people searching for a reason to own LG's latest and greatest.
