LG Electronics rolls out its most advanced smartphone, Optimus G, in Europe this month with features that have been enhanced since the device first launched in 2012.
LG's smartphone makes its European debut in Sweden this month followed by other European markets, including France, Germany and Italy.
The European Optimus G will feature Google's latest Android Operating System, Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and LG's True HD IPS Plus display together with Zerogap Touch technology. LG applied its new Zerogap Touch technology to the True HD IPS Plus display to offer not sharpness but also a more sensitive touch experience. All this comes to life with clarity on a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 IPS display protected by scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 2.
The smartphone also features LG?s enhanced UX, which includes:
- QSlide: Upgraded for 2013, the QSlide function allows users to operate multiple applications at the same time, as transparent screen layers as opposed to side-by-side frames. The size, position and transparency of the QSlide screen can be adjusted according to the user?s preference. In addition to the included video player, QSlide now works seamlessly with the included browser, memo, calendar and calculator apps.
- Safety Care: Safety Care provides real-world assistance by automatically sending location information to user-designated persons via text messages in certain situations such as when emergency services is dialed, when the phone goes unused for a certain length of time and after the user has ended a call with a designated contact.
- Privacy Keeper: Privacy Keeper allows users to hide a caller's information - such as the name, number and photo ? in an incoming call. The caller's information can be viewed by swiping the icon on the screen.
Additional features such as Google Now, Filmstrip View and Expandable Notification will also be available in the new Optimus G. Filmstrip View simplifies the viewing and deleting of images and Expandable Notification allows users to see more notifications at a glance and preview certain content directly in the notification area.
