LG Electronics is preparing to launch its LG V30 Android smartphone on August 31. The tech company already revealed some of the smartphone’s features ahead of its release schedule. In igniting more attention toward the upcoming mobile device, the company recently revealed some of the its features.

Smartphone’s Voice Recognition feature

The tech giant published a news update on its online Newsroom about its forthcoming smartphone, discussing mainly the LG V30’s personalization options. The company’s post also mentioned the customizations of the handset’s Voice Recognition feature. The tech titan is apparently introducing a new technology that would unlock the mobile device without pressing a button or touching it.


The new technology would definitely rely on custom voice commands.

The technology would set the LG V30 apart from other flagship devices, such as Apple’s iPhones and Samsung Galaxy S8. The best commands to use for the Voice Recognition feature of the handset are those with 3 to 5 syllables only. LG V30 user’s voice command will unlock the mobile device.

Although LG V30’s Voice Recognition feature may suggest that the technology is utilizing a lot of the device’s battery, but the tech giant is using Qualcomm’s Aqstic Voice UI technology so that the device’s battery life will not be affected.

The tech company also shed light on advanced facial recognition scanner’s inclusion into the smartphone.
