Video: LG teases software features coming to the G4
Following the announcement of the display panel that will equip the G4, LG is now revealing another crucial part of the G4 experience: the software.
In a Korean language video, LG is teasing the new UX4, which resembles the previous iteration of LG’s Android skin, but adds a couple of new features.
Aesthetically, LG UX 4.0 seems to be flatter, more simple, and more abstract than UX 3.0 (running on G3, G Flex 2, and others), with the bright color scheme borrowing from Google’s Material design guidelines.
Smart Bulletin, launched on the G3, is making a return, consolidating LG’s various proprietary features, like Smart Settings, LG Health, a Calendar app, Smart Tips and more. Like before, Smart Bulletin will be available with a swipe from the homescreen, similar to Google Now on the default Google launcher.
Instead of having to long-press the volume down button on the back to launch the camera, you will be able to double tap it. That’s a similar to the way the camera can be launched on the Galaxy S6, but it remains to be seen whether LG has been able to reduce the time needed to launch the camera, as the long-press feature was quite slow on the G3.

The video is also teasing LG’s calendar app, the homescreen widget that can recommend various activities, a photo album app, and the ability to quickly customize ringtones for specific contacts.
The LG G4 will be announced on April 28 in New York, and Android Authority will be there to bring you our first impressions. What do you think of the LG G4 so far?
