The year’s halfway done and it looks like LG’s not yet finished with unveiling new smartphone models for 2015. Having already unveiled a couple of flagship models, the South Korean phone manufacturer is reportedly working on a “Super Premium Phone” which they hope to launch later this year. Initially reported by ET News, this device is one that will amp up the game for LG and make it go against other giants in the league such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and OnePlus 2.
As of this writing, there is still no information as to what this device will be called. Apart from calling it a “Super Premium Phone,” LG is keeping the device under a close watch so that any information about it does not leak out to the public. But based on sales of the G4, many can’t help but speculate that this mystery phone will have specs better than the company’s recent device. Many can’t help but speculate that this device will have a fingerprint reader, wireless charger, a metallic body, and an even stronger camera. There’s even talks of this device being a part of the G Pro series and may be called as the LG G4 Pro or LG G5.
LG’s decision to work on a “Super Premium Phone” may have to do with the disappointment they received from the G4. Admittedly, sales of the G4 fell short of the company’s expectations. By working on this mystery phone, LG hopes to counterbalance it.
The next big event for the mobile industry will be the IFA in September. So if LG is currently working on this new phone, it won’t be too long before they finally give the public a glimpse of what it will be called and what it will look like.
