lg g3 android

While we’ve seen information regarding the hardware of LG’s upcoming G3, the software side has been mostly silent. Today, various leaked screenshots show that the device will feature a vastly improved UI, as well as a new “Concierge” service to help make the device more approachable. The screenshots (via Digital Trends) show off the homescreen, as well as the notification shade.

Compared to previous versions of LG’s skin, those shown off here are much more tame and in-line with Google’s overall design motif. The 3D icons have been polished off to be flatter, and LG has also replaced the menu button with Google’s standard multitasking button.

LG is also including a widget to help give you information in a friendlier way. This new widget is being called the “Concierge,” and could make its way into other widgets pre-installed on the upcoming G3.

The G3 is shaping up to be a far more interesting device than any of its predecessors. Helped along by a collective “meh” in response to the Galaxy S5, LG has a shot at knocking this one out of the park. With the UI cleaned up from its previously often-criticized look, the chances of the G3 being a homerun look far better.
