LG formally announces its new UX 4.0, will officially debut on LG G4
Just hours after we got an early peek at LG’s new user experience for upcoming smartphones, LG officially announced UX 4.0. The company also confirmed that the new user experience will make its debut on the LG G4, to be unveiled at the end of April.

LG proclaims this latest update to be a more “personalized user experience” which will go beyond the normal conveniences we normally see with other UI enhancements. LG notes that UX 4.0 is a simpler interface with fewer configuration steps, yet still highly customizable.

Quick Shot is a new feature which can let you take pictures quickly by double-tapping the rear key, even if the display is off. Smart Bulletins have been improved to aggregate information from multiple apps. From the teaser video, it looks like a blend between Google Now and hitting the multitasking key.

There are more options for photo buffs too, with simple, basic, and manual controls. Simple Mode is basically the “all-auto” end of the spectrum while Manual Mode enables “full creative control” which LG says will “impress even the most experienced photographer.” Mated to an F1.8 lens camera, the LG G4, and other devices that get UX 4.0, will be able to create event-specific photo albums.

As a whole, UX 4.0 learns more from your routines, making the Smart Notice smarter, and the information is far more relevant. So, if you are a runner, the notification will offer the weather forecast as well as additional tid bits like, “Perfect time to go for a run.” Unique customizations continue from there where the UX 4.0 will also assign a unique ringtone ID for every caller that is in your favorites list.

With UX 4.0, LG is going deeper into the user experience while removing some of the redundancy that was found in previous generations of the UI. One could say, that LG is keeping the “LG” in the user experience. We are looking forward to seeing the UX in action, up close and personal when the LG G4 is announced on April 28th.
