LG has been rumoured to reveal the LG V30s handset, a successor to the older LG V30 smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 on 26th of February. It will come with a brand new AI-powered camera with a plentiful 256 GB storage.
The device has been rumoured to feature the LG Lens, which is an AI-based camera similar to the Google Lens which was featured earlier on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The smartphone is expected to be priced at KRW 1 million (almost Rs.59300) which is on par with current smartphone flagships. It has also been suggested that the LG V30s will be available along with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ starting from the second week of March.
The LG Lens has the ability to identify real-world objects when pointed at them. If you point it at an object, it will reveal the details of the product available online. After the product is identified, it will be able to provide buying options for that product and provide similar options. The device also has the power to scan barcodes as well as QR Codes.
It also includes a foreign language translation which will translate any text into the preferred language. It provides functionality similar to Samsung’s Bixby Vision that was launched with the Galaxy S8 back in 2017.
Specifications Of LG V30s
Last year, LG released the LG V30 and V30+ smartphones with 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage respectively. The new LG V30s, on the other hand, has 256 GB of internal storage. The appearance of the V30 is expected to be the same as its older brothers, the V30 and the V30+. It is also expected to have the same specs as the older versions. This device will be having a 6-inch FullVision OLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a good battery life of 3,300 mAh.
However, we have rumours that the V30s could be the first phone to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, but there is also a possibility that Samsung will have the first hands on the Snapdragon 845 SoC. This is the first time when LG has announced a flagship smartphone with an ‘s’ at the end, similar to Apple’s naming scheme with the iPhones. LG is also expected to launch an ‘s’ variant smartphone every six months instead of one full year.

Annual Launch Cycle
LG is ditching the annual launch cycle. The company is aiming to change its strategy of launching smartphones in order to make the business profitable. The CEO of LG, Jo Seong-jin stated at a press conference at CES 2018 that the company will release a smartphone only when it is needed, not because it’s other rivals do.
