With the advent of Siri, Google Now and Cortana, users are clearly looking for more than search results when it comes to the information their smartphones provide.
Leaked info slipped to Digital Trends suggest the still-unofficial LG G3 is taking a page from these personal assistants' play books with a new "concierge" service. The name, mercifully, isn't final, but the feature is said to offer contextual information to help you better plan and experience your day.
For example, when checking its AccuWeather weather forecast, the G3 will chime in, "You may want to take an umbrella, since rain is expected this afternoon."
Sure, you probably could have come to that conclusion yourself by looking out the window, but concierge reportedly isn't limited to the obvious. It will tune into data "from various sources" and learn how you use your G3, going on the recommendation rampage from there.
Aside from its rumored assistant powers, the G3 is expected to receive a hearty UI overhaul, something we've heard before and was made obvious once again in today's leak.
Circular icons, a flatter, brighter look and a rejiggered pull-down Notification menu all look to have made the G3 cut. In the Notification menu, users will find shortcuts to turn on NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular data, and the Q Remote button.
The phone may feature a Favorite Contacts window, where bubbles of the people who you like to chat with most live.
Side-by-side comparisons with the LG G Pro 2's interface show a sharper, more sophisticated turn with the LG G3.
Finally, it's important to note the leaked screenshots come in at a resolution of 2560 x 1440, all but confirming the next LG phone should have a stunner for a screen.
