    Here's an odd new rumor for your hump day. According to the latest intel, LG intends to release another high-end, flagship device besides the G4 later on in 2015.

    The rumor suggests the second "flagship" will likely be a phablet-sized device, following in the tradition set last year with the 5.9-inch G Pro 2. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Of course, if you count the G Flex and the G Flex 2 as high-end devices, you could almost argue they are releasing three flagships per year, but that is basically just an argument of marketing semantics. What do you think of LG's strategy?

    Also, don't forget to stop by our LG G4 section for more discussions on LG's newest flagship: LG G4 Forum Android Forum at DroidForums.net

    I agree, but I'm not sure I agree.

    In what way are you saying they should be a lesson for them?

    In the sense that they shouldn't flood the market with unannounced, often duplicated devices. I could see if they had a press conference at the beginning of the year to announce their intentions.

    Take Samsung for instance. They release multiple models of the same phones throughout the year. Often unannounced. A lot of people find this aggravating as a device that is released later, that mimics a lot of the same features as the previous model, often fits more to what they originally wanted.

    And then you have a slew of phones that are meant for a lower market that are overpriced for said market so they don't do as well in sales even though they might be a decent phone for their intended demographic.

    Then I do, in fact, agree.

    I've never liked LG software. But for some reason I really enjoyed the lg G3. I hated the g pro though.
