LG V30S ThinQ is a nice upgrade, but whose idea was this name?

Posted by Mister Mobility

ThinQ of the LG V30 from 2017. ThinQ of it with 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and artificial intelligence, and you have the 2018’s LG V30S ThinQ. A variant of it with 256GB internal storage is called LG V30S+ ThinQ. The only question I want to ask the LG team is, Whose idea was this naming scheme?

LG has created their own artificial intelligence (AI) platform and named it ThinQ. Just pronounce it as “think” and you are fine. And ThinQ will be showing up first in the new models, LG V30S ThinQ and LG V30S+ ThinQ. Sigh. I can’t get past these names. LG!!!

So, we are looking at a 6-inch, FullView display with 18:9 aspect ratio, a dual rear camera setup, as well as water and dust resistance, among other features.


Let’s Talk About ThinQ

LG’s AI, ThinkQ, will let the V30S communicate with other IoT gadgets, will automatically adjust the camera settings to fit the subject, can read QR codes, as well work with Google Assistant and Alexa on your connected home devices, so you can control them with the sound of your voice.

LG says that if you own an LG V30, you will be able to download, install and use ThinkQ on your smartphone. Nice. But how about us LG G6 users?
