New update to Verizon LG V30 makes it V30ThinQ, brings AI Cam

Verizon has started pushing out a new update to LG V30 units on its network. The update arrives as software version VS99620b, and brings along multiple changes, including ThinQ branding and AI cam.
To begin with, post update, the start screen of the device will show LG V30ThinQ (instead of LG V30). This has been done to reflect "the new artificial intelligence integration."
Another change comes in the form of AI Cam, which analyzes subjects in your frame and recommends one of 4 different filters. Recommendations are based on a total of 8 categories, including people, pets, food, flowers, city, landscape (sea/sky), sunset or sunrise.
And finally, the update also bumps the Android security patch level to the month of March.

Vodafone launches Galaxy S9 and S9+ Red Bull Ring limited edition

Vodafone launches Galaxy S9 and S9+ Red Bull Ring limited edition


Red Bull Racing had a pretty good weekend – its driver Daniel Ricciardo was minutes away from missing the qualification, but his mechanics came through and the Honey badger took home a win. Great time to launch the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Red Bull Ring limited edition.
The bundle includes a branded box and a special Red Bull Ring case (named after the Austrian Grand Prix track).

The limited edition phones are available on Vodafone Netherlands starting today and lasting until April 27 (next Friday).
The Galaxy S9+ will cost you €30.69 down and €55 a month for 6 GB of data and unlimited calling and texting. With the same plan, the Galaxy S9 is €54.69 down and €48 a month.

By the way, it’s not just any case - it has an NFC chip that triggers a change in theme – as soon as you put it on, the Galaxy S9 will switch to a Red Bull theme featuring beautiful shots of its F1 cars.
The phones are also pre-loaded with info for each track. You'll also get to enjoy free clips from the Ziggo Sport Formula 1 Cafe and exclusive race images.

The Dutch Vodafone seems to be the only one offering these limited edition S9 phones, which stings a little considering Max Verstappen, Red Bull’s Dutch driver, is not having the best start to his 2018 season.
