LG, the maker behind Google Nexus 4, is reportedly building a mysterious line-up of phablets under the name - F- Series. Interestingly, there is a possibility that the folks at LG, are set to debut their strong engineering skills later this month. The Mobile World Congress(MCW) is around the corner, and LG will show us different handsets under the name - F-series. There could be just one handset at the time of MCW or multiple.

The coming of LG into the ever growing phablet market is a sign of strong competition from two Korean giants. Samsung being one of them, who is also set to debut its long rumored Galaxy Note 3 at MWC later this month. Also, there is every possibility that HTC will announce( in a form of a hint) to the follow-up of HTC Butterfly, a 5-inch 1080P HD handset. If HTC announces next- iteration to HTC Butterfly, it will surely surprise many.

Phablets: A smartphone with larger display or an invitation to a whole new category?

Phablets are super- sized smartphones with illustrious 5-inch displays. They come only in bigger package; supporting an extra- large 5-inch or even bigger displays. Samsung launched its first phablet named Samsung Galaxy Note back in 2011. The phablet was seen as a bundle of innovation with a giant 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display with dual - core processor under its hood. The company managed to reach a pinnacle with Samsung Galaxy Note 2, thanks to monstrous sales of the device. Since, than many manufacturers started rolling with their own range of phablets.

Many analysts believe that just like Apple iPad made a new whole category of tablets; in a similar fashion phablets too made a benchmark in ultra- competitive mobile phone market.

If Koreans have achieved a stature with Galaxy and VU series in a similar fashion many Indian mobile handset manufacturer made a strong debut. For instance, Micromax has hit the bulls - eye with A110 Superfone Canvas 2 - a decent device with a large 5-inch display and running Android 4.0 out of box.

HTC is also not far behind with India's most expensive Android running handset. Priced at Rs. 45, 990, it has specs you die for. A breath taking ultra - responsive 5-inch HD screen having 440 ppi display phone.

LG F-series: What to expect?

LG needs a Jesus device to better complete with Apple and Samsung. The company tried to re- invents itself by joining hands with Google. And the end result was Nexus 4. So, the F-series, will indeed, share a commonality with L Optimus G and Nexus 4. Having said earlier there is no clue - how the device will look like or which processor will beef up the device. But , it will have a large 5.5-inch display , either , a 720p or full-HD 1080p display , 2GB of RAM , 32GB of internal storage , Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 , Quad-core Snapdragon processor , and lastly Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
