Mystery V2 and GK handsets will shoot LG into the top 3 of Android makers, says Samsung
Optimus G, but also on its "successors (such as the V2 and GK)".
While we can totally agree that the Optimus G is a monster of a handset, we are pretty curious about those eventual V2 and GK units Samsung's analysts are talking about. Flagships are a good thing, but you gain more market share not with phones that cost north of $600 SIM-free, but rather with decent mid- and low-range devices.
Samsung is a living proof for that theory, so those two rumored handsets from LG might very well be midrangers, although the word "successors" keeps our hopes high that it is used in the meaning of Optimus G heirs, indicating flagship status, rather than just phones "succeeding" it in LG's launch timeframe.
