It was a busy day yesterday at LG‘s stand at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Apart from some other announcements, they have unveiled four tiers of LG‘s future smartphones that will come further in 2013: the G series with the already-familiar Optimus G Pro, the all new F series that offer LTE on the cheap, the updated Vu series as well as the stylish and affordable L2 models.
The LG Optimus G series are well-known for their raw processing power, outstanding looks mixed with a great screen and premium build quality. The original Optimus G achieved plenty of achievements itself and now LG has high hopes for their newly announced Optimus G Pro. The G Pro is equipped with a 5.5 inch Full HD display and a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz each. With a design language that’s proven to be working and mind-blowing specs, it is meant to compete with the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.
LG also aims on releasing a whole new lineup of powerful and affordable LTE device, dubbed the Optimus F series. The two models, F5 and F7 will both feature LTE and powerful processors while keeping the price down as much as possible. This move will not only make LTE handsets more affordable and reachable than before, but will also likely help the 4G LTE networks reach more and more countries throughout the world.
LG‘s last year’s success mostly lies in the huge success of their Optimus L series, lower-end devices that offered a unique, appealing design mixed with very low prices. This year, LG expands it with the newly announced L2 lineup that uses the same DNA with deep refinements in the software department. All of the devices, the new L3, L5 and L7 will run on Android 4.1 Jellybean, offer IPS LCD displays and will surely give a respectable bang for the buck.
The LG Optimus Vu was a unique squarish device that served as very useful mix between a phone and tablet. It’s 4:3 screen aspect ratio was proven to be good for taking notes on the go, reading documents and e-books and doing other things nonetheless. Now it’s time for its successor to come. The Vu2 keeps the same screen aspect ratio while keeping the design language similar, but with some additional accents that make it standout. Although both of them had been only available in Korea, LG looks forward to expanding its market worldwide.
