LG Talks Optimus UI 3.0 For Upcoming ICS Androids


The arrival of Ice Cream Sandwich has afforded LG the opportunity to try its hand at a new take on a custom user interface, which it’s simply calling the Optimus UI 3.0. The software is debuting this week with the release of the Optimus LTE II, and in anticipation of its arrival, LG is taking the time to talk a little about some of the features we can look forward to from the UI.

Some of these features we’ve heard about before, as we learned about some of the features the LTE II would deliver, like camera software that responds to voice commands. That also includes a pick-the-best-shot feature, but here LG goes into how it will function in a little more detail; one nice bit is how the camera keeps caching pictures, so when you finally do trigger the shutter, the selection of images you’re able to choose from extends back to before you even clicked.

LG’s refined its take on the Android unlock screen to allow you to swipe anywhere you like, and pattern-based locks can now be set up to automatically launch a specific app when successfully unlocked. Additional features include an app to customize Android icons, and a “simple” version of the UI for new users with improved app visibility.

After the Optimus LTE II, the Optimus UI 3.0 will arrive on the Optimus 4X HD.
