“The upgraded LG V30 is expected to offer enhanced AI features”
Earlier this month, there were reports that the South Korean tech giant, LG could launch an upgraded variant of the LG V30 (first impressions) at this year’s MWC. Now, at LG’s Innofest event in Cape Town, CY Kim, managing director for LG Electronics – South Africa, has confirmed that the variant is indeed launching at MWC.
The upgraded LG V30 is expected to come with improved artificial intelligence features. It is being speculated that the brand will add new technologies and functionalities to the device. LG is believed to have joined hands with Google to bring improved artificial intelligence to the upcoming smartphone and as such, the Google Assistant could be at the core of it. Other details of the device are unknown at this point, but we can expect it to retain the majority of the specs of the regular V30. These will include a 6-inch QHD+ P-OLED FullVision display, Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 16MP+13MP rear cameras, a 5MP front shooter and a 3,300mAh battery.
As for the LG G7, it doesn’t look like the flagship will be making an appearance at MWC. The smartphone appeared on the official website of the brand last month, but Kim reportedly confirmed that the flagship would be “little bit late”. This is in line with previous reports, which had suggested that LG’s VP and CEO Jo Seong-Jin had ordered a revision of the device, which is now being designed from scratch. The phone will reportedly be unveiled in the month of March, and be released in LG’s home market of South Korea in late April. The G7 is expected to feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC, an Iris scanner and dual cameras at both the front and the rear.
