Global electronics conglomerate LG has announced the pricing of the LG V30S ThinQ variants in S.Korea. The weirdly named upgrades of the LG V30 have two models. One is the V30S ThinQ. The other is the V30S + ThinQ. LG has further absurd-ified things by simply naming a 256GB variant of the same device differently. In other words, the only thing that separates those two models is the in-built storage. But this isn’t the first time LG has done this.

Coming to the pricing, neither of the LG V30S ThinQ variants will be any easy on the wallet. The V30S ThinQ will cost KRW 1,048,300 (roughly Rs. 63,600). The V30S+ ThinQ is even pricier with a retail cost of KRW 1,097,800 (roughly Rs. 66,600). Both the handsets start selling on March 9 with all major carriers. The US and Europe are next after Korean launch, so we expect it to land in these regions in Q2, 2018.
LG V30S ThinQ with 128GB storage: US$ 980 / Rs. 63,628 approx
LG V30S+ ThinQ with 256GB storage: US$ 1025 / Rs. 66,630 approx
LG demoed the handsets at the MWC 2018 show. Basically, the LG V30S ThinQ is the LG V30 with AI. It comes with Vision AI along with Voice AI. Voice AI is like Bixby helping users execute certain tasks simply with voice. For example, running apps, or changing specific settings and so on.
As for Vision AI, there are three main features:
Bright Mode: AI brightens the images by a factor of two to reduce noise.
QLens: It’s like a QR code scanner that scans codes and tells you details of products such as where to buy them and so on.
AI Cam: Suggests optimal settings for a certain photo-shooting scenario. It also has 8 preset modes to choose from: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. For more specs details, visit this link here.
