LG havn't unveiled anything new mobiles or tablets at this years CES in Las Vegas. However, they have used the event to unveil that they'll be unveiling a new range of smartphones at the Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona.
Many of the major mobile manufacturers seem to be adopting a similar approach and it's not surprising because MWC is an event dedicated to the mobile world, whereas CES covers everything electronic.
Information being reported by TechRadar suggests that LG will unveil a new flagship smartphone aimed at competing with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. That means it'll be an over-sized smartphone, or phablet , that will enter an increasing crowded marketplace.
The new LG smartphone is rumoured to have a 5.5 inch HD touch-screen which is likely to run at 1920*1080p (full HD). The only other information unveiled is that it'll support NFC and be available right after it gets announced at the event.
3G would expect LG's rival to the Galaxy Note 2 to have a quad-core processor,, come pre-loaded with Android Jelly Bean and to support 4G. However, we'll have to wait until next months event in Spain to get official confirmation !
Nothing is known about the other smartphones that LG will announced at the event , but we're hoping they unveil a Windows Phone 8 smartphone. However, that is quite unlikely given the Korean companies reliance on the Android platform.
