LG G3 set to go sentient and learn your phone habits

LG G3 set to go sentient and learn your phone habits

As if a fingerprint scanner and an octa-core processor weren’t enough, it’s now rumoured that the LG G3 might be getting smart.

According to ‘a source at LG’ who spoke to Phone Arena, the new flagship will have advanced personalisation features which allows it to learn your usage patterns and adapt the interface based on your needs at any given time.

The LG G3 will apparently also present you with ideas to make you more productive, but exactly what form those ideas might make is unknown.

Perhaps the phone will put different apps front and centre depending on the time and your location. For example if it learns that you use a media player every morning it might give that pride of place on your homescreen at the appropriate time, but that’s all speculation.

The source also talked of location based reminders and recommendations, traffic alerts, calendar organisation and intelligent news pushing, but those all sound like features of Google Now, so whether the LG G3 handles them differently remains to be seen.

Too many pixels

Finally the source ‘confirmed’ that the LG G3 will have a 5.5 inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, which would give it a pixel density of 534 pixels per inch.

It’s long been rumoured that the G3 would have just that, so it’s not entirely surprising, but for now we still have to take it as a rumour since it’s unclear who the source is.

  • The LG G3 will face some stiff competition from the Samsung Galaxy S5.
