A whole lot of our LG G6 info comes from LG itself, as well as today’s news is no various, as the business has simply launched an intro suggesting the phone could have a new generation of AI assistant on board.

The teaser, obtained by ZDNet, reviews “Less artificial. More intelligence. The following generation smartphone, brought to you first by LG.”

That doesn’t give much away, however naturally the mention of artificial intelligence definitely suggests that a notable one will certainly be consisted of. One of the most noticeable choice is Google Assistant, as it’s currently been reported that the LG G6 will make use of Google’s upgraded AI. But Amazon’s Alexa is feasible too, especially as LG has actually already made use of that in other (non-phone) devices.

Yet neither of those would quite line up with LG’s claim of bringing it first – the G6 might be the very first non-Pixel phone with Google Aide, but it wouldn’t be the very first smart device, and the Huawei Friend 9 has defeated it to the Alexa punch.

One phone, three possibilities

That leaves 3 possibilities that we can see, thinking we’re not reviewing way too much right into LG’s wording. One is that whatever AI the G6 makes use of is just part of just what makes it “the next generation smartphone”, and it’s the entire plan that LG is doing “first.”

Or, maybe that LG will certainly load in both Google Assistant and also Alexa – it would definitely be the very first to do that. A final opportunity is that LG might be dealing with its own AI, similar to Samsung is finishing with Bixby for the Samsung Galaxy S8, though we presume this would certainly have been dripped now if that was the case.

They’re all appealing options though, as well as we’ll recognize which is right soon, as the LG G6 is being revealed on February 26.
