LG has decided to redefine their smartphone strategy. This was announced at Mobile World Congress where they forked their smartphones into four tiers. These being the Optimus G series, Optimus L Series, Optimus Vu Series and the Newest being Optimus F Series. Quite funny is the first two represent LG’s initials, the rest came later.
The Optimus G or G series stands for LG’s flagship devices starting with the LG OPtimus G and the recently unveiled LG Optimus G Pro which is also the current flagship device.The Lg Optimus G specs were the foundation for LG’s Nexus 4 in partnership with Google
The Optimus Vu Series is for those large screens that came after the Galaxy Note from Samsung. OPtimus Vu are block shaped smartphones with an aspect ratio of 4:3 at 5 inch. These are the Optimus Vu and Optimus Vu 2, the latter which is only available in the Korean market.
The Optimus LII Series. By the way, did you know they announced series 2 of the L style devices? That means the L3 II, L5 II, L7 II and L9 II. Quite an awesome naming idea. These are an improvement to the first of the L series.
Then finally there is the new series, Optimus F designed specifically for 4G LTE. You won’t be seeing these everywhere you go as they will go only where there is enough scale in 4G LTE networks to sustain demand. The devices in this series also announced this quarter are the Optimus F5 and Optimus F7.
