LG says it's planning to introduce two new mobile flagships

From iPhones to Android phones and Windows Phones 10 Mobile handsets, there's no shortage of options to choose from for those on the lookout for a high-end device these days. You'll be able to add two more options to the list this year, as LG has confirmed that it's lining up two new flagships for launch in the coming months.

As TechRadar reports, LG acknowledged the increasingly congested nature of the smartphone market in it's latest financial report - but the company is undeterred by the potential challenge of launching multiple range-toppers this year, as it explained:

The smartphone marketplace is expected to be increasingly competitive in 2016 due to anticipated premium models from competitors and further price competition within the mass tier space.

The introduction of two new flagship models and a more cost-competitive value chain is expected to improve profitability in 2016.

Of course, LG already sells two flagship-class devices, catering for slightly different audiences. It unveiled the G4 last April, and a successor to that handset is expected in the next few weeks - possibly even making its first appearance at Mobile World Congress next month. LG went on to announce the V10 in October, featuring an unusual tiny secondary display above the main screen.

It seems likely that the two new flagships will directly replace these two devices, but we'll have to wait and see exactly what LG has in store.
