LG UNVEILS MORE HUMAN-CENTRIC LG UX 4.0
Simpler, More Intuitive and Smarter Mobile Interface Understands Users Better
SINGAPORE, Apr. 7, 2015 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its newest
mobile user interface, LG UX 4.0, will be featured on the upcoming LG G4 to be
unveiled at the end of the month. The upgraded user experience promises to be simpler
and more intuitive and will better understand and respond to the needs of each user.
Since Quick Memo and QSlide were first introduced on the Optimus G in 2012, LG has
introduced major UX enhancements every year with each G Series flagship smartphone:
Version Main Features User Benefit
UX 1.0 Quick Memo, QSlide Efficient management
UX 2.0 KnockON, KnockCodeTM Greater convenience
UX 3.0 Gesture Shot, Touch & Shoot Easier and simpler usage
UX 4.0 Camera Manual Mode, Smart Notice Personalized user experience
Up until now, UX enhancements have generally focused on delivering greater
convenience to all users. With the new LG UX 4.0, the focus shifts toward providing
more optimized and intuitive convenience to each individual at every user level for
optimal enjoyment of their LG device.
Simpler and More Intuitive to Use
First of all, LG has created a smoother user experience by simplifying the design of the
user interface and making features simpler to use by eliminating many redundant
configuration steps. For example, Quick Shot is a new feature that allows users to take
pictures quickly by double-tapping the phone’s Rear Key even while the display is off.
And the improved Smart Bulletin automatically aggregates vital information from
multiple apps on the same page for maximum convenience.
A Wider Range of Specialized Choices
UX 4.0 also gives users a wider range of options based on their own preferences and
interests. The new camera offers three user modes — Simple, Basic and Manual — to
meet the needs of all types of photographers, from amateurs to expert shutterbugs.
Simple Mode does all the hard work automatically and still delivers great photos.
Manual Mode features a suite of modules and options for full creative control that
would impress even the most experienced photographer.
The improved calendar also offers more choices by giving users the ability to select and
organize individual events posted in social media accounts by simply dragging and
dropping appointments. The new calendar allows you to get more done with less typing
by simply touching and gesturing.
Smarter UX That Understands You
The improved Smart Notice on LG UX 4.0 promises to provide more personalized
notifications for weather, travel and more by analyzing a user’s daily routine and travel
schedule and combining this information with the user’s lifestyle habits. A user who
enjoys a game of hoops may receive a notification that says, “The weather will be
mostly sunny today. It’s the perfect weather to get out and play basketball.”
Another example of greater customization in LG UX 4.0 can be seen in the Gallery,
which can create event-specific albums based on the location and time each photo was
taken. This intelligent customization goes even further with the Ringtone ID, which
automatically composes a unique ringtone for every caller in the user’s favorite contact
“LG UX 4.0 offers simpler, faster and more intuitive ways to use the G4 with both new
and improved features that intelligently accommodate each individual user,” said Juno
Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We
will continue to better understand our customers so we can continue delivering
innovations for a better life through our human-centric approach.”
