Vision AI will automatically analyze objects and recommend the best shooting mode among eight options: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. The tech will take into consideration angles of view, colors, backlighting, saturation level, and reflections. The suggestions were developed after analyzing more than 100 million photos and creating over 1,000 unique image categories for an accurate analysis.

LG-exclusive voice commands are another strength of Vision AI. Working together with Google, the Korean company is upgrading the list of voice commands to 32 were saying a specific chain of words will launch the Image Search, scan QR codes, take Panoramic or Food photos. Until now only 23 cues were available, including “Take a selfie video on a wide angle” or “Open camera with Graphy”.

Another boost is measuring the brightness of an image in a dim environment for a more accurate low-light shooting mode. Vision AI will also analyze an object that you point the camera at and will suggest shopping options with prices and similar products.

Ha Jeung-uk, Senior VP at the Mobile Communications division in LG said “the future for LG lies in AI, not just hardware specs and processing speeds”. “Creating smarter smartphones will be our focus going forward”, he added, suggesting we might see the tech implemented in the upcoming LG G7 too.
