LG to devise new flagship smartphone positioned above the LG G4 - could the G Pro series make a return?
In a Korea Herald interview, LG CEO of mobile business Cho Jun-ho said that that in the second half of 2015, the device maker could showcase a high end smartphone that's positioned above its flagship G-series.

Expected to be priced above $819, the new device will probably target Samsung's Note devices, which are usually released in the same time frame, as its main competition. LG has the display and stylus technology to produce a formidable competitor to Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge, although matching Samsung's years of expertise in high-resolution Super AMOLED panels and stylus functionality will certainly be challenging!

Riding high on the LG G2 & LG G3's considerable success, the ambitious LG aims for a 20% sales increase throughout 2015, hoping to land the spot of the third largest global smartphone maker.

To help itself on its way to success, LG will also distil its affordable L and F smartphones to four essential brands - Magna, Spirit, Leon, and Joy. It will also expand its wearable devices lineup. We've had our run-ins with LG's new smartphones and smart-watches at MWC 2015, so be sure to check out our hands-on impressions.
