LG V30 and LG G6 will be upgraded with AI functions.

On a recent post in LG Korea the company is promising the upgrade to AI functions for the last year premium mobiles V30 and G6. Meaning both models will convert in ThinQ AI devices as the V30S ThinQ /V30S+ ThinQ as well.
LG Electronics will upgrade its AI functions sequentially to major products including the premium smartphones LG G6 and LG V30 launched last year. The AI ​​upgrade policy will be implemented to ensure optimal performance in consideration of the stability of the product with hardware and software.  
We are constantly upgrading to add new features as well as to make existing features easier to use.

MWC 2018: LG V30S ThinQ and LG V30S+ ThinQ with new integrated AI debut. Specifications. Pictures.

LG Electronics (LG) is debuting its first ThinQ mobile device this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. Building on the foundation of the LG V30 platform, the LG V30S ThinQ integrates new AI technologies into the most commonly used features that are closely aligned to the needs and usage behavior of consumers today. ThinQ was introduced at CES 2018 to identify all of LG’s home appliances, consumer electronics and services that utilize artificial intelligence. With the vision of becoming a human-centered AI company that puts consumers first, LG’s vision for ThinQ is to promote artificial intelligence as an approachable and less intimidating technology.

LG began working on making differentiated and intuitive AI-based solutions for the most commonly used smartphones features more than a year ago. With a particular focus on the camera and voice recognition, the resulting Vision AI delivers a smarter camera that is even easier to use, while Voice AI significantly enhances the breadth of spoken commands in the latest smartphone.

Vision AI: Making Photography Intuitive

Vision AI includes three new intelligent camera features: AI CAM, QLens and Bright Mode that automates and enhances the smartphone image capturing experience for novice as well as experienced shutterbugs.

AI CAM analyzes subjects in the frame and recommends the optimal shooting mode among eight categories: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. Each mode enhances the characteristics of the subject taking into account factors such as the viewing angle, color, reflections, lighting, and saturation level.

QLens takes further advantage of the image recognition capabilities of the AI technology to scan QR codes to improve the online shopping experience. Capture an item of interest with QLens to get information as to where to buy the product online at the lowest price as well as recommendations of similar items. Perform an image search with QLens to see matching or similar images of food, fashion and celebrities or detailed information of landmarks such as buildings and statues.

Low light photography on the LG V30S ThinQ gets a huge boost with Bright Mode. Instead of measuring only ambient light like most smartphone cameras, this AI feature uses algorithms to brighten images by a factor of two for better looking photos without the noise.

Voice AI: LG-Exclusive Voice Commands

Another new feature is Voice AI that allows users to run apps and change settings through voice commands alone. Working alongside Google Assistant, the LG-exclusive Voice AI commands eliminates the need to search through menu options and allows for direct selection of specific functions.

More Memory, More Storage, More Colors

The LG V30S ThinQ takes the “flagship” nomenclature to a new level with upgraded features that would satisfy even the most demanding customer. With 6GB of RAM, smooth multitasking and faster performance is virtually guaranteed and storage capacities of 128GB in the LG V30S ThinQ and 256GB in the LG V30S+ ThinQ means that customers will never run out of space. In the rare event that does happen, the microSD slot provides even more storage, up to 2TB.

Still the thinnest and lightest among smartphones with displays of 6 inches or more, the LG V30S ThinQ is no slouch in the toughness and durability category, having passed 14 MIL-STD 810G tests approved by the US Department of Defense. The New Moroccan Blue color has been updated with a green tint while New Platinum Gray gives the device a sophisticated, elegant look. Both devices feature a lenticular finish on the back that displays different hues under certain lighting conditions.

Expanding the Smartphone AI Experience

The AI suite of technologies in the LG V30S ThinQ is the just the beginning of the company’s renewed strategy to create more intelligent smartphones that puts consumers’ needs above all else. While the LG V30S ThinQ offers such advanced features out of the box, certain phones from LG will receive key AI features in future updates delivered over-the-air. Additional LG smartphones will be considered for future AI upgrades, depending on hardware and other factors for the best user experience.

“Many companies talk about AI but we’re already delivering on our promise by integrating intelligent technology in the LG V30S ThinQ to features most commonly used by our customers for a whole new level of convenience never before available in a smartphone of this caliber,” said Hwang Jeong-hwan, president of LG Mobile Communications Company. “And we will continue to introduce new AI capabilities to enhance usability and to demonstrate to our customers that we are committed to delivering a great user experience that continues long after the purchase of an LG phone.”

Attendees of MWC 2018 are encouraged to visit LG’s booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 26 until March 1 for more information on the LG V30S ThinQ.

MWC 2018: LG V30S (Smart Phone AI) will arrive with enhanced Vision AI, Voice AI and with Emotional AI. AI Trends

LG is going to unveil  the V30S Smart Phone AI at the MWC 2018. It has been developed to maximiza usability.

LG explains some concepts and trends of Voice AI, Vision AI , Smart Home, on Smartphone AI. 

The LG V30S will arrive with enhanced Vision AI, Voice AI and with Emotional AI. 

What is MWC's 'Smartphone AI'?

What is the direction of 'Smartphone AI'?

For LG , AI (Artificial Intellegence) means "intellegence implemetd by machines".

A person acquires more intelligence by learning. AI also learns the data and performs the best actions to achieve the given purpose. Although there are various theories, AI is classified as 'Narrow AI' and 'General AI' depending on reasoning ability.

"Narrow AI' refers to an AI that operates logically according to a human-defined algorithm. On the other hand, 'General AI' means AI that recognizes itself beyond these limitations and learns and evolves according to their own needs.

How should 'Smartphone AI' evolve in the future?

Recently, Deloitte Consulting said in an AI-related report, "Almost all AIs to date can be seen as" my low AI. " Market researcher Gartner also analyzed that "the most notable innovations this year will be more personalized smartphone experiences."

In summary, 'smartphone AI' can be interpreted as having higher customer experience rather than higher level AI, and better value for customers. Ultimately, the so-called 'sympathetic AI' that everyone can use conveniently based on user experience is necessary for 'Smartphone AI'.

So, what area will the 'smartphone AI' develop around?

According to the report on investment by AI sector, consulting firm McKinsey announced in July 2017, the areas of 'computer vision' and 'natural language processing' among the various AI areas accounted for the first and second place in total AI investment There is. If you put them together, it's about 60% of the total. 'Smartphone AI' is also expected to develop rapidly in visual and language related fields.

The annual investment for AI

Smartphone AI' trend ① 'Voice AI'
Recently, a variety of 'AI speakers' are emerging. However, many people use only simple functions such as 'weather' or 'alarm'.

In the future, 'speech recognition' will evolve into a direction that can execute various and complex commands. From this point of view, if high-performance voice recognition technology such as 'AI speaker' is applied to smartphone, smartphone with high mobility will be more utilized. As a result, you can control various functions of 'smart phone' as well as information search with 'Voice AI'. Furthermore, it seems that it will be able to perform life services such as settlement and delivery.

"Smartphone AI' trend ② 'vision AI'

'Vision AI' is a technology that improves the cognitive ability of the customer. For example, you can take good pictures, search for the information you want from the photos, and connect with the services that your customers routinely use, such as shopping.

For example, 'Google Lens' uses images as search keywords, as if you were typing a query on a web page, giving you details. Some smartphone cameras also analyze the subject to find the best image quality settings themselves. The 'Naver Shopping Lens' also finds shopping items similar to those shot or stored images.

Smartphone AI' trend ③ 'smart home'

'Smart Home' was initially a 'voice recognition speaker' that controlled the switch or switch in the house. Now, however, major household electrical appliances are integrated with 'Wi-Fi'.

As this situation spreads to smartphones, more opportunities will open up. It is now possible to enjoy 'smart home' even outside the home.

The combination of various services and personalized information through smartphones will create a new business model. In the end, smartphones will evolve into a 'smart home' hub device.

Smartphone AI' trend ④ 'Open platform'

What we need to think about when implementing the smart home we introduced earlier is that customers should use it easily.

There are still people who find it difficult to find and connect smart home devices including home appliances through smart phones. Customers also use a variety of services and smart home devices, but not all of them are supplied by a single manufacturer.

By purchasing smart 'smart home' appliances, you can not replace everything in the house with the products of that company. Most of the 'AI platform' started to strengthen its own services, but now it is evolving to link various devices and services. Google assistant based on search service and 'Android OS' meet and synergy is a good example.

'Android OS' is not only a smart phone, but also expanding into various areas such as 'Android TV' and 'Google Home'.
Scott Huffman, general manager of 'Google Assistance', which introduces LG Electronics and Google cooperation at the 'CES 2018' LG Press Conference.

What about 'Smartphone AI' to meet in the near future?

Future AI will evolve to provide real customer value throughout your life. 'Voice AI' and 'Vision AI' seem to maximize the customer's cognitive ability with natural interaction. The features that already existed, such as the enhancement of the camera image quality, will give you a step-by-step quality and result when you meet AI technology. It can be diagnosed that a super personalized life-style service that focuses more on customer's personalization will become a new topic.

Finally, it will be a new competitiveness to see how the 'AI solution' of a specific company does not solve everything but how they interact with each other through 'open platform'.

Finally LG says the LGV30S will arrive at MWC 2018 with enhanced Vison AI, Voice AI and with Emotional AI.

MWC 2018: CAT phones announced the CAT-S61, Packed With Integrated Tools of the Trade. Specifications.Video.

FLIR thermal imaging camera with improved image quality, temperature range and live streaming  
Indoor air quality sensor 
Laser assisted distance measurement  .

Cat® phones today announced the launch of its new flagship device, the Cat S61®, to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. It is the upgrade to the Cat S60 with enhanced FLIR® thermal imaging capability, built-in laser assisted distance measuring, and an indoor air quality sensor. The Cat S61 is the most advanced tool yet to help get the job done.

The Cat S61 boasts an integrated FLIR thermal imaging camera with enhanced software for greater image contrast, expanded temperature range to 400 degrees Celsius, and an upgrade from VGA to High-Definition detail from the visible camera providing unmatched image optimization using FLIR's MSX® technology.

These new features and enhancements help enable a new set of use cases where portability, connectivity, and greater image quality are necessary. Vehicle diagnostics, asphalt monitoring, and higher temperature equipment monitoring are now possible with the Cat S61, in addition to the many traditional use cases that include detecting heat loss around windows and doors, spotting moisture and missing insulation, identifying over-heating electrical appliances and overloaded circuitry, and seeing in complete darkness or through obscurants such as light fog or smoke.

The MyFlir® application has also been upgraded on the Cat S61. New, sought-after features including live streaming of thermal imaging, on-device Tips and Tricks and a Community Forum help users get the most out of the S61's thermal imaging capabilities.

The Cat S61 also includes an indoor air quality sensor from Sensirion to alert users to high levels of indoor air pollutants (Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs) in their working environment. Common sources of VOC's include paints, solvents, carpets, furniture and cleaning products, all common in the environments typical to Cat phone users. The Cat S61 will keep watch over indoor air quality levels and inform users when an unhealthy environment is detected, allowing them to make timely decisions such as opening a window to improve ventilation or taking a break. The sensor can also provide humidity and current temperature readings.

The Cat S61 also comes with laser assisted distance measurement which can measure point-to-point distances up to 10m, then calculate area, and switch between Metric and Imperial measurement. All data is saved within the image so alternative measurement estimates can be taken or adjustments made without returning to the site.

This combination of features is highly valued by Cat phones customers. Electricians, for example, can use thermal imaging to analyse a fuse box or wiring system, and the laser assisted distance measurement to estimate how much cable is required for the job. They can also live stream results back to base should they need further advice from a colleague.  

The Cat S61 has a large 5.2" FHD screen, protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and optimised for outdoor use. It also boasts leading rugged credentials. It is IP68 dustproof and waterproof up to 3m for 1 hour. It conforms to MIL Spec 810G, and it is built to survive repeated drop-tests onto concrete from 1.8m. All these features are important to Cat phone customers who often use their phones to read and format plans and invoices while out on the job.

Peter Stephens, CEO Bullitt Group, global mobile device licensee for Caterpillar, said:

"We know that 60% of Cat S60 customers use the integrated thermal camera at least once per week and the temperature and resolution improvements found in the new Cat S61 will open up thermal imaging to many more users and use cases. Packing in even more genuinely useful tools of the trade means there's simply no other smartphone out there that can do everything the S61 can. We are incredibly proud of it."

Frank Pennisi, President of the FLIR Industrial Business Unit, said: "We are excited to support Bullitt Group through our Thermal by FLIR partner program and integrate our micro thermal imaging camera on the next generation Cat S61.  The Cat S60 proved to be an incredible vehicle for introducing more people to the benefits thermal imaging and we look forward to expanding that further with the Cat S61."

The Cat S61 will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (Stand CS78). It will be available in Q2 at an MSRP of €899 / £799 and will be available to order from http://www.catphones.com and selected retailers and operators globally.
