Well, well, what do we have here, a couple of new screenshots taken on the LG G3, that reveal its new, refreshing Optimus UI. On top of that, this confirms the QHD display that the next LG flagship will have tied under its belt.
With the new Optimus UI, LG took the minimalist approach, the one other manufacturers are also fond of. Frankly, from what we’ve seen, the UI of the G3 reminds us of Samsung’s latest TouchWiz interface, and a bit of HTC’s Sense. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, as we find the new interface better-looking than the current one, used on the G2 and G Pro 2.
The notification drawer is still very reminiscent of the one on TouchWiz, but it’s better-looking than the one of the old LG skin. It’s got circle-shaped toggles that light up blue, and a semi-transparent background. It’s also worth mentioning that the left-most homescreen pointer is in fact a ‘G’ logo, which suggests LG will incorporate a new Google Now or BlinkFeed-style app into the G3.
The LG G3 should be announced soon. As a reminder to you: it will pack a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB RAM, 5.5-inch QHD display, 32GB storage with microSD card slot. It will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
