South Korean smartphone giant, as it said earlier has today unveiled a new version of the LG V30, dubbed as LG V30S ThinQ. In addition to this, LG is also going against its usual yearly cycle of flagship releases. Apart from this, the phone is based on the LG V30 flagship launched a year ago and shares quite a few of its specifications. Specific features that are being ported were not mentioned - mostly because it hasn't been ported yet. While the V30S ThinQ will include 128GB storage, the V30S+ ThinQ will have 256GB storage. In terms of hardware changes, the device has been upgraded to 6GB from 4GB and there are two doubled storage variants available.

The LG V30S come sin 2 models, similar to the last model, the standard model offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the V30S+ doubles the storage to 256GB.

The V30S retains the exact same design as the V30, the same dual-camera system, the same 18:9 display, same 3,300mAh battery, and same Snapdragon 835 processor. This narrows down to 538 pixels per inch, so it's pretty sharp given the display size.

On the optics front, the V30S ThinQ is equipped with a dual rear camera setup comprising of a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.6 aperture, 71-degree lens, and a 13MP secondary sensor with a wide-angle, 120-degree lens along with f/1.9 aperture. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel 90 degree wide angle Front camera. There's a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC for enhanced audio quality and IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. With the vision of becoming a human-centered AI company that puts consumers first, LG's vision for ThinQ is to promote artificial intelligence as an approachable and less intimidating technology. The AI works alongside Google's Assistant.

"With a particular focus on the camera and voice recognition, the resulting Vision AI delivers a smarter camera that is even easier to use, while Voice AI significantly enhances the breadth of spoken commands in the latest smartphone", LG says in a blog post. Wireless charging is also supported.

The two most important aspects of the device, Vision AI, and Voice AI makes the V30S ThinQ different than its low-key counterpart. LG has also added a QLens image detection tool to the camera. Each mode would apply its own effect on the subject for a better image. It has QLens that scans QR codes to offer information like where to buy the product online, information of person, location or building. It also features the ability to detect and describe the landmarks in the frame. While the Bright Mode is aimed at improving low-light shots. It uses algorithms to brighten images.

Voice AI makes use of the QVoice tool that allows the device to perform over 50 functions. Over the past couple of years, LG has used the Mobile World Congress (MWC) events to show off its new phones that usually had a slightly refreshing look about them. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates from MWC 2018.

This is all for now, folks.

The LG V30S ThinQ will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box (and will thus support project Treble) on top of some impressive hardware.
