    Earlier in the year LG themselves touted that they planned to release another phone later on in 2015 that would be "more premium" than the G4. Their latest statements backtrack on this designation and instead are now describing the second 2015 smartphone as "high class."

    Yesterday, at LG's Q3 executive assembly, Mr. Cho Jun-ho, LG Electronics' head of Mobile Communications, spoke of the upcoming smartphone and indicated that the phone was never described as "super premium". He now insists that the device will simply be "high class."

    We have one question for him... what exactly does that mean? The phone only plays orchestral music and only finds expensive restaurants on Google Maps?

    Either way, he also indicated that the new LG device will be coming in Q4.

    I would LOVE to see LG step to the plate with a phone and "S Pen" like device and features... I would really consider getting one with all the good I hear about the G4

    I think LG has a huge opportunity here. Samsung stole me from Motorola but then...well, Samsung went full retard. Now LG has the opportunity to steal customers from Samsung. I say go for it.
