LG launches screen capture feature for Optimus L-Series


QuickMemo to enable users to take screen grabs, who can then write or draw a memo on the captured image before sending it to others

LG has introduced a new screen capture feature for its Optimus L-Series smartphones.

The upgrade will be available for download through LG Mobile’s homepage or by visiting a service centre in markets where Optimus L-Series are sold. It is being offered in regions including the UK and will be available globally by the end of Q3.

QuickMemo allows for instant screen capture of content such as web pages, graphical images, photos and videos, with users able to write, draw or jot a memo directly on the captured screen with their finger. The QuickMemo notes can then be shared with others via text message, chat or email.

Once the update has been downloaded, users will be able to invoke QuickMemo by pressing the volume keys or via the notification bar.

The roll-out of the upgrade will be accompanied by a global TV commercial with the theme of ‘Connect to What’s Real’.

LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company vice president of marketing centre Paul Bae said: “The QuickMemo is one of the representing features for LG’s UX (user experience) to enhance the quality of communication by sharing ideas with more presentation.”

The portfolio of smartphones includes the Optimus L3 (pictured left), L5 (pictured centre) and L7 (pictured right). LG will also introduce a pink colour edition of the devices.
