Good news for those of you with a V30 on Big Red’s network. Verizon and LG have begun pushing out an update to the device that not only includes the March security patch (boo!) but also those sweet ThinQ AI features users have been waiting for (yay!). We spotted the update on our in-office unit.

As you can see, the V30 now shows the ThinQ branding when being booted up. After turning on, you won’t notice any major changes around the Android 8.0 Oreo-based operating system, but you will find an all-new camera app that includes the new AI Cam mode. Basically, your camera will now identify what you’re looking at and adjust its settings accordingly so you get the best picture or video possible.

I’m gonna test the AI Cam a lot more, but for the few minutes I’ve had access to it, I did notice some Easter eggs I still have around my house were more vibrant with AI Cam on than otherwise. Therefore, it’ll likely be worth checking out if you get the update.

I recommend switching on Wi-Fi to download the upgrade since it sits slightly below 900MB in size. You’ll also wanna pop in a charger to ensure you don’t run out of juice mid-way through installation.

I’ll update this article with any further changes I notice.
