LG is reportedly ditching its large-screen smartphone offering, the LG G Pro line, and focusing on its high-end LG G4 for 2015.
According to reports from South Korea, the manufacturer believes that its LG G Pro range – last seen in February with the LG G Pro 2 – is becoming a little redundant.
These G Pro phones have typically boasted large displays than the non-Pro models, but otherwise had similar specs.
However, with the LG G3 coming with a 5.5-inch QHD display, such a super-sized alternative model now appears pointless. There’s simply no need for an LG G Pro 3.
That’s why LG will go all in with the LG G4 in 2015, says South Korean publication Herald Corp. In theory this should make for a better and better selling flagship phone, with more resources presumably dedicated to marketing the G4.
Of course, we’re likely to see a number of global variants and affordable or compact alternatives to the LG G4 in 2015. But it appears as if the days of super-sized LG mutations are over.
Expect to see some kind of announcement for the LG G4 some time in the middle of 2015.
