Last week LG announced the display panel that will be on the LG G4, and now they are showing off the software that will be displayed on it. LG has published a teaser video that goes over past versions of their Android UX and shows new features of “LG UX 4.0.”
The overall look of the new UX is the same that we’ve seen on the LG G3 and LG G Flex 2. It’s a nice take on Google’s Material Design aesthetic without being a copy. Smart Bulletin is making a return from the LG G3. It puts things like settings, LG Health, calendar, and Remote just a swipe away, similar to HTC Blinkfeed. Instead of long-pressing the volume down button to launch the camera you now can double press, which is coincidentally the new way to launch the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Other things that LG showed in the video include new options for camera controls, a new calendar app, a way to quickly customize ringtones, and a new gallery app. We’ll see more about LG UX 4.0 at the G4 event on April 28th in New York. What are your thoughts on the LG G4 so far?
