LG to Intro Smartphone AI at Mobile World Congress 2018
Following up on their major artificial intelligence push at CES 2018, LG Electronics announced that it will unveil a suit of AI technologies for its smartphones at this year’s Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. The new tech will be rolled out in the 2018 version of the LG V30.
In a statement, LG said that it spent more than a year researching how AI technology could and should be implemented in its smartphones—well before announcing its ThinQ AI technology at CES. The research, LG said, focused primarily on making AI-based solutions that deliver a “unique and more intuitive user experience” that impacts the camera and voice recognition features in its devices. That research has resulted in the new AI features that will be rolled out at MWC 2018, which are aptly named Vision AI and Voice AI.
“As we communicated last month at CES, the future for LG lies in AI, not just hardware specs and processing speeds,” Ha Jeung-uk, senior vice president and business unit leader for LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in the statement. “Creating smarter smartphones will be our focus going forward and we are confident that consumers will appreciate the advanced user experience with the enhanced V30 that many have been asking and waiting for.”
