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.

I'd be pretty pumped if this were the UI, unfortunately some of the icons look kinda fakey to me

Look at the internet icon. Is it the Touchwiz?

It looks like the icons are based on Google's project moonlight.

LG's refresh UI is appealing. I'm actually digging this and LG's effort to stay in the game.

I don't understand all the copying comments... This will be LG's first major release since kit Kat came out. (Pro 2 doesn't count as major and the flex came out at the same time, running jellybean) I assumed everyone went flat because kit Kat is flat. It makes sense to me.

I like it, bears some resemblance to iOS 7 but I don't find the colors as obnoxious. Looks FAR better than the previous UI hands down.

I like the icons and overall look but the contrast and color profile are horrible.

What does it matter when they don't even want to release their G Pro 2 to the US market yet.

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. ;)

Still looks better than touch wiz. Though I'd prefer a design leak I'm tired of them using that ugly ass Chinese phone for the reference

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.

Sorry. Unlike some of you, my life doesn't revolve around PA commenting. So you're just going to have to wait. Or don't. I don't care.
