With MWC drawing closer, LG have revealed that they plan on releasing two flagship devices this year, to help compete with the “competitive” smart-phone space. With most manufacturers releasing at least two top of the line alternatives (iPhone 6S/6S+, Samsung S6/S6Edge/S6Edge+, Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL), it would only make sense for LG to follow suite.
This isn’t very surprising though given that LG already have tow flagship status devices available on the market, in the G4 and the V10; both of which provide a premium experience (and demand a flagship status price-tag), although the V10 is more on the bleeding edge of modern technology.
The smartphone marketplace is expected to be increasingly competitive in 2016 due to anticipated premium models from competitors and further price competition within the mass tier space.
The introduction of two new flagship models and a more cost-competitive value chain is expected to improve profitability in 2016.
Although the news isn’t very surprising, I can’t help but be excited for the G5 and whatever LG decide to bring after the V10, MWC can’t come soon enough.
