At Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona this weekend, LG will be unveiling the LG V30S ThinQ.

ThinQ is LG's brand for home appliances, consumer electronics, and services that feature artificial intelligence. It is created to let you search for a particular product on Amazon by taking a photo of it using the LG V30S.

AI CAM analyzes subjects in the frame and recommends a shooting mode out of eight categories: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset.

Other important changes this LG V30S ThinQ brings us bright mode for the camera. This bright mode gets automatically enabled when you're in a low light scenario. To round things out, LG has made two key hardware upgrades, including a bump to 6GB of RAM, up from 4GB, and storage options of 128GB and 256GB, up from 64GB and 128GB. The V30S ThinQ is therefore the first ThinQ mobile device, which will set the bar for LG's AI efforts in smartphones. In a nutshell, Vision AI means a smarter camera and Voice AI means more spoken commands. In the rare event that does happen, the microSD slot provides even more storage, up to 2TB.

QLens takes further advantage of the image recognition capabilities of the AI technology to scan QR codes to improve the online shopping experience. 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.

Still the thinnest and lightest among smartphones with displays of 6 inches or more, the LG V30S ThinQ is no slouch in the toughness and durability category, having passed 14 MIL-STD 810G tests approved by the US Department of Defense. The New Moroccan Blue color has been updated with a green tint while New Platinum Gray gives the device a sophisticated, elegant look. The V30S ThinQ is the first instance of this strategy. The company's recent V30 smartphone launched to critical acclaim and positive customer response, but its high price is a sticking point for some potential customers. Additional LG smartphones could also get future AI upgrades, but LG isn't committing to any just yet.
