LG, the South Korean giant needs a Jesus device to better compete with Samsung and Apple. In the past few months LG has come up with two high end devices - LG Optimus G, and soon to be launched device -- LG Optimus G Pro.
When LG announced the latter device, it was clearly said that the device would be the successor to mega successful LG Optimus G, which retails for Rs.30, 000 in the Indian market. Now Engadget reports that LG is preparing with a sequel to LG Optimus G. The information has been shared by Won Kim, Head of Mobile Marketing at LG Mobile.
He [Won Kim] told Engadget "something different and something unique" is coming soon. As per the report it clearly hints at something new from LG is coming, and that could be a sequel to the LG Optimus G. The specifications are still unknown and it will be equipped with a 5-inch Full HD display, and beefed up internals.
The coming of the speculated sequel to LG Optimus G hints that the South Korean giant is either not impressed with the sales of its high-end devices introduced to tackle Galaxy S3. Last year, the Taiwanese giant HTC unleashed two high-end devices to crush Samsung Galaxy S3, but critics were not impressed with the illogical move made by HTC. Looks like LG is also following HTC steps by launching more than one flagship device to take on Samsung's Galaxy S4 , and Apple iPhone 5S ( due this summer).
