TECH NEWS FROM LG ELECTRONICS
LG Electronics is trying to drum up excitement over the launch of the G5, its next flagship Android phone, with an image revealing what's likely to be the device's most distinctive feature.
You Know this days Android phone market dominated by Samsung, you may not even be aware of LG's respected but less-prominent phones. If LG's always-on screen is truly useful, not a mere gimmick, the G5 might just catch your eye and even change the way you use your phone.
- An always-on display would negate the need to press any buttons to check notifications
- or the time. That may seem like a small change, but given how often we need to check why our phone just buzzed or who's calling, it's a convenience you could appreciate many times a day.
- Speeding up these glances is one of the main sales pitches for smartwatches.
Battery life is still a big deal for phone users, so it'll be fascinating to see how LG has reconciled the two.
South Korea-based LG has attempted to include similar tech before in its G Flex 2 and the G4, in the form of "Glance View". But these phones still required a gesture of some kind to be used to wake the screen. In contrast, the gif implies that some information on the G5's screen will always be visible, even without being touched.
