In its press release announcing Q4 and full-year 2012 financial results, LG said that it’s planning follow-up devices to Optimus G and the L-series as well as the new F-series. Hear that, F-series – that’s something new and we’re not sure what they’re talking about.
If I had to guess, the F-series devices will be phablets, smartphones with 5.3-inch and larger screens. That, however, is just my thinking and we’ll rather have to wait for Mobile World Congress to get some answers.
Back to LG’s results. The company has sold a total of 15.4 million mobile phones worldwide in Q4 2012, 8.6 million of which were (Android) smartphones, generating a revenue of $2.58 billion. The figure represents a notable (23%) growth over the third quarter when LG managed to move “just” 7 million smartphones.
