LG to release a new user interface called Optimus UI 3.0


LG Electronics is introducing a new user interface called Optimus UI 3.0 for its newest Android Ice Cream Sandwich devices. The company aims to make it faster, simpler, and more convenient through a set of enhanced features such as Quick Memo and unique unlock functions, among others.

Quick Memo enables users to share their thoughts through social networks, text messages and e-mails more conveniently than ever before. Users will now also be able to unlock the phone by dragging anywhere on the screen. They can also preset the most frequently used function, such as the camera, so that it will automatically open once the phone is unlocked. The Voice Shutter feature allows them to capture photos using voice commands, while a special camera feature lets users get the best shot among multiple images including the moment just before they let go of the shutter button. The new user interface will also have an Icon Customizer, a Download category added to the menu, and a simpler version that organizes the main applications for easy access.

The new Optimus UI 3.0 will debut on LG’s Optimus LTE II device that launches this week in Korea, followed by the Optimus 4X HD in June.
