Could the app drawer be making a return to the LG G5?
When the LG G5 was first revealed last month in Barcelona, to the surprise of many, it looked like the upcoming flagship smartphone was set to not feature a traditional app drawer.
Indeed, even the early pre-production build we got our hands on for our upcoming review, currently doesn’t feature an app drawer, though this problem is easy to circumvent by switching to Google’s standard launcher (or a custom launcher).
It seems, however, that LG has changed its mind. In a recently released video showing off the LG G5’s user interface – called the UX 5.0 – the company showed off their upcoming smartphone’s updated Android skin.
The new video depicts “Home” and “EasyHome,” with the former being the G5 UI we went hands-on with in Barcelona. In the video (which can be seen above) a third additional option is now available called “Home & app Drawer.” This version of UX 5.0 seems to feature a regular app launcher with revamped icons and a standard app drawer.
The user interface shown off in the video also seems to depict a cleaner UI and slightly altered icons.
Our full review of LG’s upcoming modular flagship smartphone will be live later this week.
