Along with the company's first QHD phone G3, LG also launched the new flatter UI which complemented the device in a pretty massive manner. However, the South Korean tech giant's new UI was only limited to few phones until now.
Today, the company has announced that it would release the UI and the UX features to all its mid and entry-level smartphones and tablets launched in the second half of this year. The new UI is already present in the new LG G Pad series and the G3 Beat smartphone. However, not all features that are in LG UX of the G3 will make its way to the lower range smartphones, as some of those are completely dependent on hardware.
Anyways, apart from the UI, these devices would also get the simplified camera features including Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot, Clean View preview interface and more. Other features in the new UX includes, Smart Keyboard with app-based word suggestions, re-size option and more.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG, said, "With the basic principles of the G3's UX features rooted in making complex technologies simple and convenient, our goal was to provide consumers with a user experience they genuinely need and want . Standardizing these features across our entry- and mid-tier mobile products is just a natural extension of our desire to make every LG device feel premium and unique."
The release also notes, "Another UX feature to be standardized is Smart Keyboard, which reduces input error by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively "knowing" what words the user intended to type. The keyboard can be re-sized to better fit the user's hands and thumbs."
However, one thing still remains a mystery as to whether the company will release the new features for G series and L Series of smartphones.
