It’s not the specifications, but the AI features that is the primary focus of the LG V30S ThinQ. It comes with LG’s proprietary Vision AI and Voice AI technologies, offering an amazing camera and voice recognition experience.
AI CAM: This has the ability to analyze objects in the camera’s frame and recommend the best shooting mode from among several choices, including portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset.

These features have been introduced by LG in its bid to compete with Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy S9 and S9+ with improved features.
