Samsung and LG – South Korea’s largest phone makers – both have their own User Interfaces (TouchWiz and S-Class, respectively), which can be used combined with other OSes (Android, Windows Mobile etc).
Now, TouchWiz and S-Class don’t have too many things in common, but it looks like Samsung and LG will soon use a similar FX UI that supports really nice 3D and video animations.
Said FX UI was actually demoed at MWC 2010, first on a large device with a QWERTY keyboard, and then, for some reason, also on the Google Nexus One (which, of course, has nothing to do with Samsung and LG).
Here’s a video preview of the future UI (via Mobile-review):
Reportedly, the new FX UI will be used not only on phones, but also on other mobile devices, and even in car systems. Samsung and LG should launch handsets based on the new UI in late 2011. Samsung probably plans to use the FX UI on its Bada OS smartphones, while LG might use it on its Android handsets.
