The LG G4 was announced not too long ago, but it seems that the LG G4 will not be the company’s only flagship phone for 2015. LG has typically released two flagship phones a year, following the footsteps of its rivals Sony and Samsung, and it looks like 2015 will be no different as the company said they will continue their dual flagship strategy this year.
This is according to a report from Focus Taiwan who quoted LG’s director of mobile business in Taiwan, Eason Shao. Shao said that with the release of two flagship phones in 2015, the company is aiming to increase its sales in Taiwan by at least 30%. However as for what kind of specs we might expect, Shao claims that the hardware specifications of the second phone have yet to be finalized.
Typically what LG has done is release the LG G Pro series first, a phone designed to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S series, and follow it up by the LG G-series which is a phone meant to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note series. We saw this last year with the launch of the LG G Pro 2 at MWC 2014, followed by the LG G3 several months later.
However in 2015 LG changed their strategy by announcing the LG G4 first, with rumors claiming that LG might have nixed the LG G Pro 3 in favor of the LG G4. That being said if this is the way LG is proceeding, we’re not quite sure what to expect but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
