LG releases video showcasing QSlide feature of Optimus G

LG is all set to release its new flagship device – the LG Optimus G. The company has been showcasing many features of the phone. It has now released a video that shows one of the new features, called QSlide. The video shows many uses of the QSlide feature, such as multitasking and managing privacy around other people.


QSlide allows you to change the transparency of apps that are running at the same time. This feature enables you to do things such as texting or browsing the web while watching a video. Another great feature, as showcased in the funny ad, was privacy. You could quickly raise or lower the transparency of certain windows to show or hide what you’re doing. Another feature was the ability to make quick drawings. This could mostly be useful for taking down notes or setting up important reminders.

Here is a quick look at some of the main features of the LG Optimus G:

  • 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels
  • LTE, 3G, EDGE/GPRS and Wi-Fi capabilities for net access, NFC
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0
  • 13 MP camera with LED flash and 1.3MP secondary camera up front
  • 32GB Internal memory

LG claims that with the powerful quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor as its base, and the best technologies in the industry for enhanced viewing and longer battery life, LG adds the finishing touches on the Optimus G with a sleek design and innovative UX features. The brand claims that the offerings in the Optimus G will provide users an experience currently unavailable on any other smartphone.

“The Optimus G is a groundbreaking premium device not only in the history of LG but also in the smartphone industry,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With the Optimus G, users will be able to experience unsurpassed UX features that will allow them to perform tasks that really enhance their daily lives.”

LG claims that the technologies such as the Zerogap Touch and True HD IPSPLUS Display from LG Innotek and LG Display harmonise to offer the slimmest, sharpest and clearest viewing experience yet. The new battery from LG Chem which is a 2100mAh battery has a longer life of 800 cycles, a significant improvement over existing mobile phone batteries. An ultra high-resolution, compact 13MP camera is employed in the Optimus G to offer the sharpest photos without pixelation – even when creating extra-large prints.

LG Display’s contribution to the project was in the development of a new mobile display that is clearer than AMOLED displays but requires less power. LG Display’s True HD IPS+ Display is sharper than today’s AMOLED displays due to its high pixel density of 320ppi (1280 x 768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel. This new display is capable of generating 470nits of brightness while consuming 70 percent less power compared to others when displaying a white background. Furthermore, True HD IPS+ Display does not suffer from screen burn-in as AMOLED displays have been known to do.



The phone will be released globally this month.
