“With Smartphone hardware becoming more and more similar, it’s important for manufacturers to differentiate their products from the competition through the user interface. Both carriers and customers tell us that they want LG phones to look and feel unique and the UI plays a big part in that. LG is really going to push the boundaries of what is possible in interfaces starting with Optimus UI 3.0.” – HK Kwon, Managing Director, LG Electronics (M) Sdn. Bhd.
Designed with convenience and speed in mind, Optimus UI 3.0 features a powerful memo function called Quick Memo that enables users to jot notes on the screen using a finger. Users can also share the notes through social networks, text messages and emails more conveniently than before.
Other new features include:
-- the ability to unlock the phone by dragging anywhere on the screen
-- a new Pattern Lock that allows users to preset the most frequently used function, such as the camera, which automatically opens once the phone is unlocked
-- a simpler version of Optimus UI 3.0 for new Smartphone users which organizes the main applications so that they are the easiest to access
-- a new Voice Shutter that allows users to capture photos using only voice commands
-- a special camera feature that enables users to pick up the best shot among multiple images including the moment just before the shutter button is depressed
-- an Icon Customizer that provides an additional level of personalization by allowing users to set their own photos as icons and shortcut images
-- the addition of a Download category to the menu for easier organization
Optimus UI 3.0 will debut on the LG Optimus LTE II launching this week in Korea, followed by LG Optimus 4X HD in June.
