Owners of the V30 and V30 Plus in LG's home country of South Korea are now receiving an update meant to enable some features of the more recently released V30S ThinQ on their handsets, the phone maker said earlier this week. The new software package comes bundled with the vast majority of functionalities LG touted as the key selling points of the V30S ThinQ earlier this month in Barcelona, Spain. Among other things, the company's 2017 Android flagships are now being updated with support for LG's new artificial intelligence-powered camera experience and QLens, a computer vision solution reminiscent of the Google Lens and Bixby Vision.
The new AI-enabled camera app that will soon be available on all members of the V30 family in the South Asian country is advertised as being highly automated in nature, being capable of identifying one's subjects and adjusting the shooting settings accordingly so as to make them pop out as much as possible. The software is said to be able to recognize countless objects and creatures one might be interested in photographing while still featuring a robust manual mode that's widely touted as the most in-depth one in the mobile industry. QLens and voice-enabled controls are also part of the package, whereas the handset itself is available in a new Moroccan Blue color option, in addition to the Platinum Silver variant which the Seoul-based tech giant already introduced late last summer with the original V30 lineup.
On a hardware level, the V30S ThinQ is a revised version of the V30S Plus, boasting 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal flash memory, in addition to coming bundled with a pair of LG-made earphones capable of leveraging its quad-DAC setup. The new smartphone is scheduled to be released in South Korea later this month but its global availability date has yet to be specified. Likewise, it remains unclear whether LG is planning to bring the AI features of the V30S ThinQ to its older V30 models in other parts of the world.
