2018 LG V30, to be unveiled at MWC, will use AI to recommend camera settings and more

In two weeks, MWC will be open and at one point during the trade show, LG is expected to unveil its revised LG V30 model which is rumored to be called the 2018 LG V30. One of the new features on the device will be software giving the revised phone some AI capabilities. Voice AI will allow the user to give voice commands to Google Assistant that are exclusive to LG handsets. These commands allow the camera to start up in a specific mode.

23 of these commands were introduced last year with another 9 unveiled this year. The latter commands include:

Deal: Buy the unlocked LG V30 for just $675 from B&H and save $125

LG’s latest flagship, the V30 is already available in the United States, but customers can’t get it for less than $800 via major carriers unless they agree to sign new long-term contracts. The good news is some US retailers discount the flagship from time to time and even if the percentage is less than 20%, these deals are still worth taking into consideration.

For the second time this year, B&H has discounted the LG V30 by $125. Since the smartphone’s retail price has dropped to $800 at all major carriers in the US, you’ll be saving around 15% when you buy the LG V30 from B&H.

LG rumored to launch V30 model with improved AI features at MWC 2018

According to a new report, LG might be preparing to unveil an upgraded version of its V30 model at MWC 2018. Sources of The Korea Herald suggest that the enhanced handset will come with “improved AI features” and will possibly be called “V30+ α”. The Korean media outlet is rather vague as to what these AI features will be, but it does mention that LG has likely developed them in direct collaboration with Google.
While we do recommend that you take this information with a pinch of salt, LG Mobile’s recent change of strategies does make the story seem a bit probable. …

I’m pretty sure that all of you, LG V30 owners in the United States, can’t wait to get your hands on the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update, so I’m glad to tell you that you won’t have to wait too long.

After releasing the update in South Korea, LG has started testing Android 8.0 Oreo for the V30 in the US. At least one LG V30 owner received the update for its US unlocked version of the smartphone.

LG V30 in Raspberry Gold hands-on

As expected, the Raspberry Gold version of the LG V30 made its debut at the showroom floor during CES 2018, expanding upon the lineup’s existing set of dazzling colors. We spent a little bit of time checking it out at LG’s booth, leaving us just a bit jealous afterwards. 
Much like the other color options for the LG V30, this Raspberry Gold one shimmers in the light – emitting this tantalizing look as light bounces off its surface. It’s a refreshing change of color quite honestly, as rose gold has been traditionally the ‘gold’ choice amongst smartphones. …

Buy the LG V30 for $674.99 from B&H and save $150

While the LG G6 is considered to be the manufacturer’s flagship model for 2017, many would argue that the LG V30 is actually the better phone. First of all, LG was put in a box last year when Samsung gobbled up all of the available Snapdragon 835 chipsets thanks to a handshake deal with Qualcomm. That forced LG to use the Snapdragon 821 SoC on the LG G6 and wait for the LG V30 to employ the newer chip. When it comes to photography, the LG V30 remains LG’s finest. The primary 16MP snapper on the back has an f/1.6 aperture, and the second rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP.

For a limited …
