Obviously this is just a marketing tease, but it still has us intrigued. LG made the bold claim that they plan to launch a new smartphone that will be even higher-end, and stand at a higher tier than their flagship G series.
According to Juno Cho, CEO of LG Mobile, at MWC 2015,
We are planning to release a product that stands above the G series. It will be launched during the second half of this year.
That is a little vague, and Cho didn't elaborate on any details, but he did share the following.
"Producing our own mobile application chips is very important. As LG Electronics has been consistent in developing these, we plan to gradually incorporate into our new models,"
Cho made sure to share that LG wasn't planning on leaving the G4 out in the cold though. He added,
"We are aiming to become the world's third-largest smartphone manufacturer this year in terms of annual sales. LG Electronics will be aggressive in promoting the G4 in major target markets such as Korea and the United States,"
What do you guys think? Is this a realistic goal for LG?
