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.

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.

And that's saying something.

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.

Some people would say it's good because it's not from Samsung. :)

LGs home button, the house, has eaves troughs compared to my N5s.

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.
