LG Electronics will showcase a suite of AI technologies for its smartphones at the "Mobile World Congress" (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain from February 26-March 1.

To begin with, the AI technology will arrive first in LG V30 -- the company's most advanced flagship smartphone to date, it said in a statement on Tuesday.

One such AI technology is "Vision AI." With camera features like dual lenses, wide-angle low-distortion lenses and the all-glass Crystal Clear Lens, "Vision AI" makes the camera of LG V30 smarter and easier to use.

"Vision AI" automatically analyses objects and recommends the best shooting mode from eight modes available -- portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise and sunset.

LG image recognition technology will analyse over 100 million images in order to develop the phone's image recognition algorithms.

Over 1,000 unique image categories have been created for more accurate image analysis, resulting in better shooting mode recommendations, the company said.

Another feature "Voice AI" allows users to run apps and change settings through voice commands.

Working alongside Google Assistant, the 32 "Voice AI" commands -- up from 23 commands in 2017 - the "Voice AI" eliminates the need to search through menu options and allows for direct selection of specific functions.

"The future for LG lies in AI, not just hardware specifications and processing speeds," said Ha Jeung-uk, Senior Vice President and business unit leader for LG Electronics Mobile Communications.

"Creating smarter smartphones will be our focus going forward and we are confident that consumers will appreciate the advanced user experience with the enhanced V30 that many have been asking and waiting for," he added.
