By on

LG G3 user interface surfaced and revealed the next version of LG Optimus UI that features flat look. Moreover, G3?s rumoured specs are 5.5-inch display, QHD display resolution and Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor but won?t run Android 4.5 OS.

New LG Optimus UI

LG seems to be working on a revamp of their Optimus UI according to latest reports and it features flat look throughout the system. Flat-looking Optimus UI surfaced on the rumoured LG G3 smartphone via screenshot which uses minimalistic app icons, notification icons and widgets.

Having a flat UI may indicate light consumption on the RAM and smoother performance compared to the previous Optimus UI.

QHD Display Resolution

According to an insider, LG G3 will sport 5.5-inches of screen display, IPS LCD panel and 2560 x 1440 pixels or QHD display resolution. In August 2013, LG revealed a device that features these specifications and scheduled to be released in the second half of 2014.

Processor and Camera

LG G3 may feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and not a 64-bit chipset based on latest reports. But some speculations are pointing out that LG is planning to develop their own octa-core processor which may appear on future LG mobile devices.

LG G3 will also have a 16 MP camera, but no information yet regarding the sensor or module attached to the lens.

Release Date

May 17th is the expected debut of the LG G3 smartphone and the company may hold their own event like with G2. If the launching date is true, LG G3 won?t feature Android 4.5 version and will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with the new LG Optimus UI.

Google?s upcoming Android 4.5 OS is set to be unveiled at the Google I/O 2014 in June and expected to rollout on Nexus 6, Nexus 8 and HTC One Google Play Edition by the following month.

LG G3 may also be linked on the development of the next-generation LG Nexus 6 by tracing manufacturing experiences with Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. However, the two flagship smartphone will have distinction from each other like last year.

LG G2 uses gesture controls rather than touch keys to achieve tasks while Nexus 5 retained original functionalities and debut the first Optical Image Stabilisation module on a Nexus smartphone and Android KitKat OS.
