South Korea's second most popular handset maker LG is doing really well after the firm hit the jackpot with the instant success of the G2, followed by the G3 flagship. Now, what next? Looks like the makers behind the G Pro 2 handset are planning to replace the Vu lineup with an all new series, tentatively known as the G Stylus.
According to serial leaker @evleaks, LG is indeed working on a new series that will eventually used to take on Samsung's insanely popular Note series.
It is being widely believed that LG could discontinue its Vu series by adding a new lineup to the G family. However, apart from the name, nothing much else is known about the G Stylus series. Going by the word 'Stylus', one can easily imagine a competitor to the Galaxy Note 3 in the making.
LG Optimus Vu Series - The End is Near
LG originally announced the arrival of the first-generation Optimus Vu handset in 2012. It was an odd looking phone having a 4:3 aspect ratio. The phone was followed by the LG Vu 2 and Vu 3.
The last device under the Vu series was launched last year at the IFA Berlin tech show. So, it is suspected that the speculated G Stylus handset might get launched at this year's IFA tech show in September of this year.
