OK, not really.. I mean, it could, we just don't know that yet.
But what we DO know is that LG does have some drastic UI changes coming to their version of Android which is supposed to debut on the LG G4, LG's newest flagship handset that you have probably seen alot of lately in the countdown to it's official unveiling coming soon. Let's be clear, Sprint has not announced that it will carry the G4, but here's to wishful thinking. LG has also not said whether UX 4.0 will just be on the G4 or will be backported to existing handsets like the Flex2 in future software updates, but anything is possible. Here's to hoping!
So, what is UX 4.0?
With 4.0, LG has completely redesigned their Android user interface and the on device experience for the user. Everything from new camera modes to the Quick Circle menu to accessibility options and even down to redesigned icons themselves. The entire goal is to make everything flatter, simpler, more elegant and with hints of gorgeous design, all with ease of use for the user with a "human centric" focus in mind.
You see that lightness, simplicity and enrichment are all themes that you see in the Part 1 video above. One of the things I am most excited about is Ringtone ID, basically customized ringtones for contacts that automatically creates a custom tone using the digits of the contact's phone # to create the tone, it's genius!
Now with the latest UX 4.0 video released just a day or so ago, more camera features like Quick Shot and Gesture Interval Shot (to take that perfect selfie if you're into that kind of thing) as well as more on Ringtone ID. Finally, Quick Memo plus is a way to allow you to capture shortcuts and notes that you need without a bunch of other clutter in your home screens.
I'm sure this won't be the last you see of LG's UX improvements, and again, fingers crossed we'll see this awesome software on the G Flex2.
Let's hope so, it looks killer!
Until next time,
