Yes LG Electronics will not present its next benchmark smartphone LG G4 during the MWC 2015 fair in Barcelona in early March, he will be present with a new series of smartphones positioned in the mid-range and whose first details emerge a few days before the event.
Two of these models, the LG Magna and LG Spirit, will have the distinction of presenting a curved display, as in the case of LG G Flex 2 presented at the beginning of the year for the CES 2015 show in Las Vegas and marketed for a month in South Korea.
The curvature will be much less pronounced than for the flagship model, in particular because it is an LCD display and not flexible screens as for the LG G Flex 2 but their integration is the result of LG's desire to offer premium functions even in its mid-range smartphones.
The Korean group has experienced good sales growth after several difficult years but must now strengthen a stagnating global market share at just over 4% under the effect of the rise of Chinese competition.
In addition, recalls the blog Digits (affiliated with the Wall Street Journal), LG intends to continue the momentum of its connected watches LG G Watch / LG G Watch R (and now LG Watch Urbane) with a stand-alone connected watch carrying a cellular modem and a connected watch under WebOS by next year.
