Alleged Leaked Screenshot Of The LG G3 Homescreen Shows New UI Design Aspects

April 9, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

LG has done a pretty good job compared to its competitors when it comes to keeping the lid on images, videos, or any other kind of leak, on their upcoming LG G3 smartphone that is due to launch sometime this year. That doesn’t mean that the occasional leak or screenshot hasn’t popped up from time to time. Today we’ve just come across a screenshot that is allegedly from the LG G3 and it serves as a good reference that it is beginning to fall in line with the new look of Android. Things look a lot more flat than on previous devices which isn’t actually a bad thing. The design of the new UI, if it’s in fact from the LG G3 looks great and we can’t wait to see more.

As you can see from the image the home screen icons look more flat instead of having a pop up 3D visual appearance, and widgets look to definitely be taking on the same design. As the LG G3 is slated to be released running Android Kit Kat, we can also see that there is a presence of the transparent status and navigation bars on the top and bottom of the screen as well. The G3 is rumored to be coming with a 5.5-inch quad HD display and potentially carry a 13MP camera sensor with OIS. Last years LG G2 came with a 13MP camera, but the screen size was only 5.2-inches so perhaps LG will enlarge the display a little bit this year. The G2 also had OIS in its camera, so if they don’t have OIS with the G3 it would just seem a little odd.

We might expect to LG follow in the footsteps of Samsung and HTC and provide some protection from the elements with this new flagship device, and we may or may not see an octa-core processor inside. As per all other kit kat devices, you can see that the screenshot shows the white themed icons up in the status bar. We wouldn’t expect anything less. While the overall look and feel so far seems to be more in line with the theme of kit kat as a whole, we want to see everything. The app drawers, the settings menus, the app UIs themselves, everything. While we might not get to see any more screenshots or leaks showing off more looks, we’ll keep our fingers crossed that at least one slips by the folks over at LG.
