Samsung’s newest flagship offerings -- the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus -- come with some really cool features, such as Intelligent Scan (which combines facial recognition technology with iris scanning software) and AR Emoji (which allows users to transform their selfies into their own AR enhanced emoji). But some may argue that as cool as these features are, they do not quite reach the levels of the iPhone X’s Face ID tech and Animoji feature (helped immensely by the device’s 3D camera on its front side).
While it is true that LG did opt not to formally introduce a new flagship device offering at this year’s Mobile World Congress event (held just last month), fans of the brand may still be delighted to know that the South Korean tech giant may be planning to unveil the upcoming G7 smartphone in May of this year, at least according to a recent report published by ETNews.
LG’s fans may be a bit saddened that the phone maker had decided not to unveil a new flagship device offering at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress annual event (but the South Korean tech giant did showcase its new artificial intelligence software suite by way of the V30S ThinQ phablet). But the most ardent followers of the brand should still feel excited when it comes to any news about the follow up to last year’s G6.
As promised a couple of weeks ago, LG is introducing a new variant to one of its flagship devices last year, the LG V30. Enter the LG V30S ThinQ -- the latest addition to the South Korean tech giant’s impressive V lineup of phablets. The V30S ThinQ is basically a V30 supercharged with several artificial intelligence features.
Just a few days before this year’s Mobile World Congress is set to kick off in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain, LG has decided to confirm that it is planning to formally unveil new 2018 editions of its existingK8 and K10 midrange handsets during the annual mobile tech show.
Yes it is true -- LG has already made it clear that it will not be formally introducing a new flagship device offering during the upcoming annual Mobile World Congress event (which is scheduled to begin on February 26th and last until March 1st, in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain). But this does not mean that the South Korean tech giant is not cooking up something new.
A dozen days before this year’s Mobile World Congress kicks off (at the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain), LG has decided to announce its plans of unveiling its own smartphone artificial intelligence (AI) suite, which will be landing on its new devices slated for release later this year, including a new iteration of last year’s LG V30 flagship phablet.
LG has just revealed that it will infusing one of its flagship device offerings last year, the G6, as well as the midrange Q6 handset, with new color options -- namely, Moroccan blue, raspberry rose, and lavender violet. Specifically, the LG G6 phablet will get the raspberry rose option, while the Q6 will get the Moroccan blue and lavender violet options.
It was in the later part of February of last year when LG had first introduced one of its two flagship devices for 2017 -- the LG G6. It should be pretty reasonable to expect that by next month, the South Korean tech giant will also be formally unveiling the first of its 2018 flagships, the G7 presumably.
According to a report recently published by Yonhap News, it appears that LG’s own take on the mobile payment system concept -- LG Pay -- will be launching in the United States some time within the first six months of this year. It is quite possible though that LG Pay will make its American debut with a new brand name -- LG Wallet. As reported by Android Police, a mobile app with an identical name was seen listed in Google Play last week, but it has since been removed during the weekend.
