LG backtracks on
Earlier this year, LG Electronics' head of Mobile Communications – Cho Jun-ho – tipped that LG will be releasing a "super-premium" handset in the second half of 2015. Not much info was given about the device, but the wording made us think of it as a shiny, pristing metal-and-glass sandwich – a construction choice that is currently quite popular among flagship devices, no small thanks to Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

Well, yesterday, at LG's Q3 executive assembly, Mr. Cho Jun-ho spoke of the mistery smartphone and said that the phone has never been described as "super premium". Fair enough, words and meanings could've been distorted through sources. Still, the director of Mobile said that the phone will be a high-class handset and will be coming in the final quarter of 2015.

Speculation and whispers suggest that the phone will be of the "phablet" kind, made to battle Samsung's Galaxy Note5 and the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus. Now, whether LG will be adding a special stylus to the phone is still up in the air. Fingers crossed – the "smart pen" niche could use some competition!
