The last few months have been quite hectic in LG’s mobile division. In addition to unhappy results in terms of sales , the company has been forced to restart the process of design and manufacture of the LG G7 that presumably was to be launched during the mobile telephony fair in Barcelona, the Mobile World Congress. For this reason, the South Korean company has been preparing a renewed version of the LG V30 , which they have chosen to call V30s. Everything points to its strengths being artificial intelligence and internal storage. One of the main changes for this V30s would be the introduction of an artificial intelligence system that would allow the device to be able to recognize the objects focused to provide us with information about them, something we have already seen in applications such as Google Lens or virtual assistants such as Bixby and his Bixby Vision.
LG has named it LG Lens and will perform the same function. Secondly, LG has prioritized the issue of storage for this new version of the V30. While the original model had 64GB or 128GB internal storage options, the V30s will have an extra version with a capacity of up to 256 GB of internal memory. More internal storage, of course, you will not miss. As for the rest of the specifications, it seems that everything will remain the same as the original LG V30, but we believe that LG will have to provide other important reasons if he wants this smartphone to scratch a few looks and, above all, sales comparing to other devices that will be presented during the Mobile World Congress, especially, the Samsung Galaxy S9.
