LG: New Google Lens features will arrive during Google I / O

Google Lens could have an update just around the corner. But we did not know this from Google. But LG, who gave a clue in a statement announcing his latest LG G7 ThinQ phone . The G7 ThinQ debuts a button on the side of the phone that you can press to open Google Assistant and double click to open Google Lens.

“The G7 ThinQ will be one of the first devices to obtain the new features of Google Lens,” LG said in a press release. “More Google Lens details will be revealed on Google I / O. “

Google Lens is a function that uses the camera of an Android phone to present information about the objects it identifies. Lens caused a stir when Google announced it a year ago at the Google I / O developer conference, and it was launched for the first time on Google Pixel 2 phones . With Google I / O 2018 starting on May 8, Google may announce that Lens’s quick initialization feature will be available for other phones.

The button to invoke Google Assistant in the G7 ThinQ makes LG the second brand to use a hardware button to activate the voice assistant. Samsung introduced the Bixby assistant on the Galaxy S8. While Samsung wants its phones to serve as an avenue for Bixby to be on all its devices, Google Assistant on an LG phone helps Google maintain competition.
