LG may be launching a new smartphone called the V 30 s, an upgraded version of its V 30 flagship at Mobile World Congress this year, according to a report in ETNews (via PhoneRadar). The V 30 s will purportedly share the same design as the original V 30 , but with a new AI -powered camera feature

LG's V30 smartphone arrived last fall as a strong flagship with notable flaws, but we loved how much it suited the vlog life. Rumor has it that LG will announce a new model at the upcoming Mobile World Congress: The V30s, a largely similar phone equipped with a new AI-powered camera.

Per the rumor mill (ETNewsvia Phone Radar), the V30s' AI camera would work with an "LG Lens" functionality similar to Google Lens on the Pixel 2 or Bixby Vision on Samsung's Galaxy S8. In other words, point the phone at an object and the camera will recognize it and provide on-screen context. It's unclear if that extends beyond AI recognition to the heights of assistanceship that Samsung's and Google's AI-plus-camera platforms aspire to be.

Pelicans sign Emeka Okafor to 10-day contract

  Pelicans sign Emeka Okafor to 10-day contract Emeka Okafor was drafted with the No. 2 overall pick in 2004 by the Hornets.New Orleans continues to fill out its roster in the wake of DeMarcus Cousins' season-ending Achilles injury suffered in the Pelicans' matchup with the Rockets Jan. 27.

The report states the updated flagship will feature AI features and, quite possibly tight integration with Google Assistant, similar to the Pixel 2. While we don’t have pricing details for the V 30 α just yet, its name may provide us with a hint. In the past, LG has used the alpha suffix on lower-priced phones.

At the MWC 2017, LG opted for the Snapdragon 821 instead of the latest Snapdragon 835 for its new flagship smartphone LG G6. LG will be introducing “ LG Lens” that might work similar to Bixby Vision. The company will also add AI -based features to its camera app for better results.

Scuttlebutt also noted that the LG V30s should offer 256GB of internal storage, the same as the hideously expensive 2 million won ($1,800) V30 Signature Edition and double the 128GB cap of the stock LG V30. The new model will also include a MicroSD slot for further expansion. Assuming Phone Radar's leaks are accurate, the V30s will go on sale in South Korea in early March after it debuts at MWC.

LG's next flagship phone may tout an extra-bright, low-power screen .
Just because LG is shying away from typical smartphone release cycles doesn't mean it will have nothing big to show in 2018. Well-known leaker Evan Blass has heard that LG is planning to unveil a new flagship phone, nicknamed Judy. The star attraction, as with the G6, would be the display -- though not for the usual reasons like size or resolution. Judy would have a 6.1-inch, 18:9 ratio screen whose MLCD+ technology (which includes white sub-pixels) promises a high 800-nit brightness while consuming 35 percent less power than a typical IPS LCD panel. You could use the phone outside on a sunny day without killing your battery as quickly as usual.
