“Vision AI brings along a new low-light shooting mode that automatically brightens up images clicked in dimly-lit conditions”
While most other smartphone companies try to keep their special features wrapped till the official product announcement, LG has a reputation for creating hype about its new features way ahead of the actual launch. For its upcoming LG V30 (2018), slated to launch at MWC this month, the company has decided to take the same approach. LG has claimed that its proprietary Vision AI and Voice AI will help the V30 (2018) to deliver better camera performance as well as offer convenient voice commands to users.
The South Korean company says that with the Vision AI, the LG V30 (2018) is able to automatically analyse the objects in the image and recommend the best shooting mode from among eight modes: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. “The angle of view, colour, reflections, backlighting, and saturation levels are all taken into consideration as the phone analyses images in its database to determine what the camera is focusing on in order to recommend the best setting,” LG said in its release.
The introduction of Vision AI also brings along a new low-light shooting mode that automatically brightens up images clicked in dimly-lit conditions. All of this effectively means that users who don’t like to manually adjust all the camera settings will be able to click better pictures with their smartphone thanks to artificial intelligence. Another aspect of Vision AI allows the V30 (2018) camera to scan QR codes, search for images, or even provide shopping options for the product (as was earlier seen with Bixby Vision image search).
Moving to the Voice AI, LG says that the new component will allow users to run apps and change settings through voice commands alone. “Working alongside Google Assistant, the 32 LG-exclusive Voice AI commands up from 23 commands in 2017 Voice AI eliminates the need to search through menu options and allows for direct selection of specific functions,” the company said in its release.
Notably, LG has clarified that certain AI features will not just be limited to the new models and will also be delivered to the existing smartphone models via over-the-air (OTA) updates. LG V30 (2018) will be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona later this month.
