LG 2016 Line-Up: No G Flex 3, G5 in April, V10 Sequel in H2?

Although industry insiders have mentioned the Samsung Galaxy S7 numerous times in one way or another throughout these past couple of months, South Korea’s second-largest smartphone maker didn’t enjoy as much time under the spotlight as its close rival.

We’re referring of course to LG, whose future 2016 smartphone lineup continues to remain shrouded in mystery despite the fact that, if history is any indication, LG should be getting ready to introduce the sequel to the G Flex 2 at CES in January.

However, according to a recent report from the company’s homeland, there might be a good reason why it’s been so quiet in LG’s camp: there will be no G Flex 3 at CES, or at all…

LG 2016 Smartphone Lineup Availability Rumors Emerge

As mentioned above, up until now we haven’t heard much about LG’s plans for the smartphone market next year, but earlier today we came across a series of rumors from Korea that might explain the lack of information.

Reportedly, LG has no plans to unveil the LG G Flex 3 at CES 2016, and it might skip this particular sequel altogether. Should this be the case, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising given the mixed reception received by the original model despite its ambitions, and the initial overheating issues surrounding the G Flex 2.

The good news is that the Flex is not the main player in the company’s top tier segment, which is currently covered by the LG G4 and the LG V10. Reportedly, the LG G5 will be unveiled in April, just like the G4 was earlier this year, and the original report goes on to mention that LG will also prepare a V10 sequel for a market release in the second half of 2016.

As far as the LG G5 goes, we’ve previously heard rumors claiming that it will feature an iris recognition sensor, a 20 MP 1/2-inch custom Sony Camera Sensor and a metal unibody.

This wraps it up, for now, but we’ll keep you posted if we find out more. Until then, what’s your take on the idea that LG could skip the G Flex 3 next year?
