CES 2013: LG Announces Panorama Note Feature for Optimus Vu II

It allows users to make extra wide memos and drawings on their smartphones

South Korean handset maker LG did not make any phone-related announcement at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, but the company introduced quite a slew of other electronic devices, including TVs.

However, LG promised it would launch at least one new smartphone next month at Mobile World Congress 2013, in Barcelona.

Until then, LG Electronics introduced a neat feature for Android users who own the Optimus Vu II. Dubbed Panorama Note, the new feature for Optimus Vu II has been recently demoed at the 2013 International CES, held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to LG, the Panorama Note features will allow Optimus Vu II owners to create extra-wide 3:1 ratio memos and drawings directly on their smartphone displays.

Furthermore, the handset maker claims the Panorama Note features 5.8 times zooming capability and offers easy navigation of the screen both vertically and horizontally.

It appears that the features users cursors and a Mini Map in order to display the location of the viewed image in the original image.

“Panorama Note is just one of many user experience features that LG will be introducing this year to differentiate our mobile devices,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

Although the newly introduced feature is only available on the Optimus Vu II, LG promised Panorama Note would be launched on additional devices later this year.

“Our UX features will be deeply integrated with our devices to take advantage of the smartphones’ specific hardware. The battle of smartphone specs will continue but we’re going to take the competition to the next level,” added Park.

In the same piece of news, the South Korean company said it would introduce a new Talk feature as well, which will be demoed at CES 2013 on the same Optimus Vu II smartphone.
