LG G3 UI images leak, seemingly confirm the smartphone's Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution
Here we have what seems to be the very first look at a new UI that will reportedly debut on the LG G3 - which is expected to be announced in the coming months. As you’ve surely heard, the G3 will be LG’s true flagship smartphone for 2014, succeeding the well-received LG G2 from last year.

Unlike Samsung, HTC or Sony, which already released flagship handsets with 1080p displays, LG will try to lure customers with a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) G3. That’s what was reported until now, and, sure enough, one of the newly-leaked UI screenshots appears to confirm the ultra-high resolution of 1440 x 2560.

Received by GSM Arena, the G3 UI images show a clean, simplified interface. The notification drawer seems a bit crowded, but things look pretty nice overall.

It’s said that the G3 may resemble the recently-revealed LG isai FL, so it could have extremely thin bezels. That aside, the upcoming high-end smartphone should feature Android 4.4 KitKat, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP or 13MP rear camera.

Naturally, we can’t be 100% sure that what we’re seeing in the UI screenshots below will also appear on the final version of the G3. But we’re hoping to discover more details about LG’s next-gen flagship handset soon.

Dull contrast and more of BAU.

Too beige and turquoise color scheme, I'd say.

Can't you always customize it? Why the complaint?

that's the beauty of the Android :D
I don't mind the UI too much and I think I like it better than what they used to be. However, still not the best looking UI out there in my opinion.

Transparent notifications has been in android since the 2.3 Gingerbread days. At least in Motorola's UI.
However, these icons do look exactly the same as io7.

Well , transparent notification bar is in android four years now..but ios 7 has transparent plus a glossy look...

Wow, that's interesting. I always thought that Apple stole the whole notification bar system from the Andriod OS in the first place.

It's funny how girls can be less picky about colors than some people here. If you want a "pretty" phone then glue some rhinestones on your phone. Problem solved.

Ripping off touchwiz didn't work out for them, now they're trying to rip off ios7 and boy does this look 100x worse.

It's not even close iOS7 and that's a good thing for LG.
Maybe some elements from Touchwiz but you don't know what "ripping off" means.

The thin icons in the notification toggles and the color scheme. Also the video and calendar app icons are identical. this is just from 1 screenshot, wait for the others buddy.

well they still managed to rip off the notification center of the new touchwiz, I wouldn't be surprised if once again they also copied the settings menu from Samsung.

Pick. An. Icon. Style. Either go flat, or go shaded. Either simple, or detailed. There is such a mishmash of styles in a small handful of icons it borders on ridiculous.

My S5 suffers from the same poor icon design, and even adds different shapes to the mishmash.

The notification bar looks a bit like iOS 7

Can't wait for people to say how LG is ripping off Apple because that's how iFans are

I really like LG phones but than Touchwiz rip off is just pathetic, what LG is doing all the time is waiting for Sammy to release flagship and then copy most features. This isn't good.

I like it. Kind of a minimalist look to it. I think it looks great.

It also kills me every time I see someone saying LG is ripping off Sammy when Sammy is ripping off everyone else. Samsung's own CEO even admitted to Samsung blatantly copying the competition then trying to one up them. They use the exact same strategy with their TV's and home appliances.

Samsung copies everyone? Please tell me where all these 5+ inch smartphones were before Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy Note. Please tell me where all these smartwatches were before Samsung started releasing them. No I'm not saying they were the first, but they made it popular and everyone else followed them.

Pebble's smartwatch was out before Samsung's. Long before. Samsung may have pioneered the Phablet category, I'll give them that, but they copied Sony and LG in televisions down to the remote controls. Then used their scale to flood the market and become the market leader.

Sad to announce (sarcasm) but you just made a fool of your self because your comment #34 "wtf is this lol" doesn't fit with description of sarcasm. ;)
