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,
LG will continue its dual-flagship strategy this year with the new G4 and another flagship phone scheduled for release in the second half of 2015, hoping that combined sales of the two devices in Taiwan will increase by 30 percent from last year, Shao said, adding that the hardware specifications for the second phone have not yet been finalized.
Shao made the remarks at the Taiwan launch of the 5.5-inch G4, which features a 16-megapixel camera module with an F1.8 aperture lens that allows 80 percent more light to hit the image sensor than its predecessor.
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?
