LG Electronics’ first 5G smartphone, the V50 ThinQ 5G, will support customized artificial intelligence functions that would make users feel as if the smartphone is a real personal assistant, LG said on Tuesday.
With the new 5G smartphone, set for launch next Friday, LG is focusing on increasing users' convenience by reinforcing the AI platform to understand circumstances.
The device suppoprts what LG calls a 'Customized Intelligence Service,' which uses AI to understand 'when,' 'where' and 'what' information a user is seeking to find.
For example, the V50 ThinQ will help users with parking. When a user parks and gets out of the car, the smartphone will recognize the situation and remind the user to take a picture of the parking location.
When commuting by subway, the phone alarm goes off as the train approaches the destination, preventing users from missing their stops.
“In the era of 5G where users send and receive far greater amounts of data, LG’s 5G phone has the feature of helping provide users with more accurate information at a faster rate in a secure manner,” LG said.
The new device also makes it wasier for users to connect to an LG Smart TV or a home appliance. In addition, the smartphone's AI Vision camera-centric function automatically recognizes a subject and applies appropriate settings for a better photo. Vision AI is now faster than before, by analyzing the image in just 0.02 seconds.
And by supporting the 'Google Lens Recommendation' feature, users can shop of search for an object by just shooting it with the smartphone's camera.
