LG G3 COMBINES SMART AND SIMPLE [Week, The (Oman)]
(Week, The (Oman) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LG Electronics introduced its G3 smartphone, the successor to the LG G2, with launch events taking place in six cities London, New York, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul last week. Developed under the 'Simple is the New Smart' concept, LG G3 is a culmination of con sumer research based on LG's product development philosophy 'Learning from You'.
Highlights of the new G3 include 5.5" Quad HD display with 538ppi with four times the resolution of HD and almost two times higher resolution than a Full HD display; 13MP OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) camera with Laser Auto Focus that can shoot sharp images in a fraction of the time required by conventional phone cameras; polished metallic skin on the rear cover that is light weight and fingerprintproof; Floating Arc form factor that feels comfortable in one hand and incorporates the innovative design heritage of the Rear Key; and redesigned graphic user interface (GUI) consistent with the 'Simple is the New Smart' con cept of the G3.
In addition to the advanced core technologies, LG took its 'Learning from You' approach to a higher level with new UX features to offer G3 users a unique experience. Highlights include Smart Keyboard adaptive technology learns as the user types for faster input with less mistakes. Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75 per cent by tracking and analysing typing habits and intuitively 'knowing' what word the user intended to type. The height of the keyboard can also be adjusted to better fit the user's hands and position of the thumbs. Individual keys can also be customised with frequently used symbols for even faster input.
Like a personal assistant, Smart Notice provides suggestions and recommendations based on user behaviour, phone usage patterns and location to offer user information when it's needed the most. Smart Notice can remind the user of a call they declined earlier and ask if they would like to call that person back. If the user has a large number of unused files or apps on the G3 taking up valuable space, Smart Notice will ask if they would like to delete or uninstall them. But what sets Smart Notice apart from other personal assistants is its natural language capabilities. For example, instead of just displaying today's temperature and weather forecast, Smart Notice will make a recommendation such as, "You may want to take an u m b r e l l a today since it will rain this evening." Considering the importance of maintaining and securing confidential data, the LG G3 offers a number of enhanced security features such as Knock Code, which enables users to unlock their device with a pattern of taps. Content Lock keeps personal files safe and hid den from view when sharing the G3 with friends. Kill Switch gives G3 owners the ability to disable their phones remotely in the event of theft.
