SEOUL, Mar. 28, 2016 — With the imminent consumer rollout of the new LG G5, LG

Electronics (LG) will also be introducing a new version of its mobile user interface, LG

UX 5.0. Designed for a more playful and innovative mobile experience, LG UX 5.0 will

offer advanced features and greater convenience not only for LG G5 users but owners of

upcoming smartphone models as well.

Based on Android’s latest Marshmallow OS, LG UX 5.0 conveys LG’s philosophy on

the future of mobiles. LG UX 5.0 is an enjoyable, enhanced and user-centric UX that

supports easy connection for optimal control of LG Friends and delivers a more

convenient and powerful experience by adding new functions that allow users to enjoy

the G5 to its maximum potential.

“We analyzed the lifestyle of smartphone users to provide a superior mobile experience

and greatly expanded the usability with LG UX 5.0,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO

of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “LG UX 5.0 and G5 were

designed to provide an innovative user experience that reflects the needs of our most

demanding customers.”

An Enjoyable UX for Connecting with LG Friends

The highlight of LG UX 5.0 is LG Friends Manager, a versatile application that enables

users to easily connect with and control the modules and accessories known as LG

Friends. LG Friends Manager intuitively detects nearby accessories for easy pairing

with LG G5, easily downloading and installing all the required apps from the Google

Play Store. No hassles, no hunting. With LG Friends Manager, the process of

connecting the LG G5 to its Friends couldn’t get any easier.

LG Friends Manager generates a different display for each LG Friend. When paired

with the 360 CAM, the screen on the G5 will display photo previews and the available

shooting modes. The Friends Camera Album in the Gallery enables users to categorize

and manage images captured with LG Friends such as 360 CAM and Rolling Bot.

An Enhanced UX for a Powerful Visual Experience

The greatest advantage of LG UX 5.0 is its enhanced support for LG G5’s extremely

powerful camera. Image and video capturing has never been so enjoyable with features

such as:

Zoom In & Out – Seamlessly switch between the standard 78-degree lens to the 135-

degree wide angle lens by simply pinching the screen.

Auto Shot – An enhanced version of Gesture Shot, take the perfect selfies with this

smart feature which triggers the shutter as soon as the users’ face is recognized.

Multi View – Captures different angles of images at the same exact moment using the

front and rear cameras of the G5 and the LG 360 CAM.

360 Wallpaper – Images taken with the LG 360 CAM can be displayed as a 360

panorama, shifting in sync with movements of the G5.

Pop-out Picture – Combine two images taken simultaneously with the standard and

wide angle lens to create a picture-in-a-frame effect.

Film Effect – Raise the level of effects with this set of filters that deliver an “analog”

feel to photos. Use Camera Preview to preview and change a filter on the fly before

taking the shot.

A User-Centric UX for Greater Convenience

LG refined its user interface and included several new smart features on LG UX 5.0 to

enhance usability and convenience, such as:

New Home – LG combined its Home Screen with the App Drawer in LG UX 5.0 to

simplify the user experience. Users who prefer the traditional style can download the

Home & App Drawer directly from the settings menu on the LG G5.

LG Health – Upgraded for UX 5.0, LG Health provides a Beginner as well as Advanced

mode matched to the user’s profile. Start with Beginner and switch to Advanced once

your activities reach a certain level, staying motivated along the way with visual details

of your progress.

Always-on – Avoid the hassle of turning on the smartphone display just to check the

time. With Always-on, all your key information including the date, notifications and

SMS icon are displayed on the screen at all times.

Smart Doctor – Keep your G5 performing at its optimal level with solutions and tips

based on your usage habits.

World Clock – Enhanced with an attractive graphical user interface, this smart clock

displays the time in selected cities around the world and immediately syncs them to

whatever local time you set for easy scheduling of phone calls and meetings.

File Manager – Navigate the G5 as easily as navigating your PC with direct access to

any folders or files indicated by the directory path at top. Use the new search filter to

find documents, videos and images anywhere on your G5.

Quick Help – Find answers to any questions about the G5 quickly and easily or request

feedback by e-mail.

LG Backup – Use LG Backup and NFC to restore conveniently from other Android

phones and now record conversations from your favorite messenger app.

Diverse Security Method – In addition to LG’s familiar Knock Code, accurate

fingerprint recognition is now built into LG UX 5.0 to provide added convenience and
