#MWC10: Next-gen FX UI for Samsung and LG devices demoed on a Nexus One

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.

    pretty uninspiring video, what's supposed to showcase the future seems a step backward. Laggy as hell.

    It's probably laggy because it's an early version – there's plenty of time to make it faster until 2011.

    It's probably not the fault of the user interface itself, bur rather the woman demonstrating the video which makes it frustrating to watch. If you're gonna demo something, make sure you don't bore your audience and breifly show us the advanced features rather than explaining each feature for about 3 minutes and my, talk about a finger print magnet that thing is. I'm not lambasting the editor or anyone who put this up, but my, a very poor demonstration video.
