Codenamed Judy, LG’s next flagship smartphone will reportedly launch in June. With Snapdragon 845 and dual rear cameras, the smartphone is said to succeed G6.

“LG will use ‘MLCD+’ for the display which is capable of producing 800-nit brightness while consuming less battery power as compared to traditional IPS LCD panels,” famous leaker Evas Blass said.

Blass is reliable most of time when it comes to new, however, there is no official announcement from LG yet.

Other specifications include 6.1-inch display, 18:9 ratio, 64GB internal storage, 4GB of RAM, IP68 protection (water, dust, and impact resistant), stereo speakers, HDR imaging and wireless charging.

Earlier this month, LG announced to introduce a suite of Artificial Intelligence (Ai) technologies for its smartphones at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The new technology will be featured in the 2018 version of the LG V30 – the company’s most advanced flagship smartphone that was launched last year.

These AI-based technologies are developed to offer an enhanced user experience, focusing on the camera and voice recognition. LG introduced “Vision AI” in V30 that automatically analyses objects and recommends the best shooting mode from among eight modes: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset.

“The angle of view, colour, reflections, backlighting, and saturation levels are all taken into consideration as the phone analyses images in its database to determine what the camera is focusing on in order to recommend the best setting,” the company said.

For example, if you point the camera at a plate of pasta it will result in food mode being invoked, resulting in warmer colours.  LG collaborated with a partner in image recognition to analyse over 100 million images in order to develop the phone’s image recognition algorithms.

Another feature of Vision AI provides shopping advice through smart image recognition. By simply pointing the camera at an object, LG’s Vision AI can automatically scan QR codes, initiate an image search or provide shopping options including where to purchase the item for the lowest price and other similar products that the customer might find of interest.

Another new feature in the AI suite is “Voice AI” that allows users to run apps and change settings through voice commands alone. There are now 32 LG-exclusive Voice AI commands -- up from 23 commands in 2017.

“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,” said Ha Jeung-uk, Senior Vice President and Business Unit Leader, LG Electronics.
