The new phone will include enhanced artificial intelligence features. It is unclear if these features will reach the existing V30 and V30+ smartphones. This move to bring a V30-variant is reportedly a part of LG’s new direction to extend the life of its premium handsets, rather than introducing new phones. The company CEO Jo Seng-jin had indicated the new direction at the recently CES trade fair. LG confirmed that the company does plan to showcase new features at MWC 2018, but did not reveal whether a new device will be unveiled. Although unconfirmed, it is entirely possible that LG releases a variant of V30 at MWC with new features and later offers the same features via an update to the existing V30 owners.
