LG to unveil new smartphone series, likely during Mobile World Congress

LG has posted a teaser photo on Facebook of a ribboned box, claiming a “new series will be unveiled.” All evidence points to Mobile World Congress at the end of this month, as LG chose not to release any new mobile products during CES.

It’s unlikely that the company would replace its Optimus G flagship so soon after its launch, and LG already has a “phablet” in the Vu (though it’s found little success outside of Korea). It caters to the entry- and mid-range with the Optimus L series, of which we’ve previewed the forthcoming sequel, so we’re pretty stumped as to what this new series could be.

What do you think? Where can LG best take a chunk out of the market? Are they finally launching a Windows Phone 8 device?

    Sorry Lg, u may bring new phones to the market but you haven’t learned how to send out software updates on time. FAIL.

    4.5″ screen + 3300mah battery + awesome camera = success

    WP at this point would be a losing proposition.

    They (LG) make decent hardware like HTC, hopefully it or they bring better fortunes to LG.

    By “new series” I would love LG (or any other manufacturer) to launch a “Pure” series of devices. This Pure series would either (a) feature pure unskinned Android or (b) the choice to run the manufacturer skin over pure Android.

    In my ideal scenario, LG is emboldened by the success of the Nexus 4 to take this step and as is usually the case, other manufacturers will parrot the move.

    One can hope right?

    The only thing i can think of would be a line of new android Tablets since LG doesnt have anything in that department (atleast in North America) if im not mistaken.
