The artificial intelligence is a good first attempt, but it doesn't quite live up to LG's claims - yet, Garzon said.

The big draw, however, is the infusion of AI, leveraging LG's propriety 'ThinQ', which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year.

The LG V30S ThinQ and the LG V30 measure 151.7 x 75.4mm and weigh 158g, though the V30S ThinQ is ever so slightly slimmer at 7.3mm compared to the V30's 7.6mm.

Apart from these, the LG V30S ThinQ comes with the same 6-inch 18:9 QHD+ OLED display that is covered with Gorilla Glass 5. But whereas Apple and Huawei are touting their AI hardware components, the AI here doesn't even run on the Hexagon DSP in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor (which would be Qualcomm's equivalent in terms of AI hardware)-it's just a routine run on the CPU.

AI Cam, which comes from third-party vendor EyeEm, tries to ID elements in a visual scene to lock one of eight photo modes, such as food or portrait mode.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM, V30S ThinQ comes in two variants of standard V30S ThinQ with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and V30S+ ThinQ with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The storage can also be expanded up to 2TB with a microSD card. The primary sensor has 16MP resolution, ƒ/1.6 aperture, and wide-angle lens. The secondary camera uses 13-megapixel wide angle lens with an F1.9 lens. Both sensors are accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and can record 4K videos at 30fps.

Responding to a reporter's question, DeMoss said Graham had not spoken to Trump since the flamboyant businessman became president. Graham had suffered from symptoms of Parkinson's disease and had been losing strength, hearing and eyesight, DeMoss said .

The V30S ThinQ uses AI in many ways not yet seen including the camera with software they are calling Vision AI. Vision AI comprises of 2 new camera features for photography - the AI CAM that analyzes subjects in the frame and recommends optimal settings for capturing the image, and the Bright Mode that brightens up the images clicked in low light. As of now, there is no information about the pricing or the availability of the LG V30S ThinQ smartphones.

The smartphone also comes with a new digital assistant, Voice AI, which, working with Google Assistant, takes out the need to go through menu options and allows direct selection of specific functions. It is also an IP68 certified smartphone, which means it is water and dust-resistant. The phones are MIL-STD 810G compliant for improved durability against drops and extreme temperatures. The phone has a 3,300mAh battery and LG has added support for Quick Charge 3.0 and wireless charging.

It's a basic specs update to the existing LG V30, with a few tweaks that make it better than the Android phone we reviewed six months ago - and emphasis on few tweaks.

The LG V30S is scheduled to launch within one to two weeks after MWC 2018. The new device-backed by a 3300mAh battery-comes in colour options of Moroccan Blue and Platinum Gray.

Ahead of start of MWC 2018, LG has announced today LG V30S ThinQ smartphone which is the company's first ThinQ mobile device.
