This year, several smartphone manufacturers, including Apple, Samsung Electronics, Huawei, LG and Xiaomi are expected to introduce new devices that feature better AI-based assistants in an effort to increase overall market share, according to industry reports.
Full reveal set for February 26th
It appears that LG will definitely try to get all the coverage it can for its upcoming LG G6 smartphone at the MWC 2017 show, and today, the first official picture of the smartphone has found its way online.
But there is already an AI in air-conditioning Toto
LG has jacked some AI under the bonnet of its ‘Whisen Dual Air Conditioner’ and says its cunning plan is to apply AI to its other household appliances.
Xiaomi too, late 2017 if not later
We are facing two major trends in 2017 and 2018. One is having phones with really small bezels and the second is a way toward folding phones. The latter is expected in late 2017 at the earliest, but all major companies have filed patents covering folding phones.
Living on the edge
This year we will see the end of the bezel, or at least phones with very slim ones.
Released in March
According to a report coming from South Korea, LG's upcoming G6 flagship smartphone will be announced at Mobile World Congress 2017 and available in March.
IoT if you want it or not
LG says that all its products will ship with Wi-Fi connectivity from this year.
Will also increase small flexible OLED production
LG Display will double its output of large OLED panels and continuously increasing production of small flexible OLED panels for smartphones to attract more attention to the technology.
Not enough moths
LG’s idea to make modular phones has been abandoned because punters were not interested.
OLED, nano cells, wider viewing angles and Technicolor Advanced HDR are us
During its annual keynote at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, LG announced a new range of Super UHDTVs and a new “revolution” to the television experience it is calling the OLED W series.
