LG is expected to introduce several new smartphones this year. The list includes an LG G7 ThinQ and an LG V35 ThinQ, both of which should arrive in May. The launch of the G7 ThinQ is set for 2 May in New York. Following these launches, we're also expecting to see the launch of a device code-named "Storm".
According to leakster Evan Blass, the smartphone to be launched after the LG G7 ThinQ will be code-named "Storm" and is expected to be the LG V40 ThinQ. The V40 ThinQ is expected to be launched in the late summer or early fall of this year. The ThinQ branding seen on the recent smartphones by the company indicates the presence of "AI" capabilities. The specification of the "Storm" is not known yet.
The company has also released a software update for the LG V30 smartphone which was launched in August 2017. The new software version VS99620b brings support LG's AI Cam and also adds ThinQ branding on the start screen of the smartphone. LG has also included security patches with the update. The camera of the smartphone now recommends four different filters that enhances the characteristics of a scene by optimising contrast, saturation and colour. The recommendations are based on 8 categories including people, pets, food, flowers, city, landscape (sea/sky), sunset or sunrise.
