According to Focus Taiwan, LG will continue its dual-flagship strategy this year with the new G4 and another flagship phone scheduled for release in 2015.
Traditionally the Korean smartphone manufacturers have followed each others lead quite closely when it comes to important smartphone releases. This year will probably be no different.
According to Focus Taiwan, “œLG 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.“
In previous years we have seen the Optimus G Pro being launched in the same year as the Optimus G, and last year the G Pro 2 was launched alongside the LG G3. It‘s unclear whether this rumoured device will be merely a successor to the G Pro 2, or if it will try to take on the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. With LG releasing the G4 Stylus this past week, we wouldn‘t be surprised at all.
