The next iteration of LG's user interface for Android may follow the trend of embracing flat design elements. Samsung flattened is icons and UI elements in the latest version of Touchwiz on the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC did the same with Sense on the One M8. It appears that the LG G3 will continue that trend among flagship devices.
Dutch website LGG3Kopen has posted a screenshot allegedly taken from the LG G3. The image shows a home screen with noticeably different icons than we typically see from LG. The icons have the same basic design, but they have fewer bevels. The result is a design style closer to what we've seen from other Android manufacturers as well as Microsoft and Apple. Though LG's style still uses shadows and layered elements in the icons, it's a departure from the gaudy imagery typically seen from the company.
If the image below is real, it would be the first sign of what LG has planned for its new Android user interface. More information might leak before the expected G3 launch later this summer, but here's a glimpse of what might arrive later this year.
