According to a Korean website, LG, the second largest Korean manufacturing company, is about to make a pretty big bunch of Windows 8phones. The Korea Times reports that there are every possibility for LG to unveil a 5.5 inch smartphone with full HD support at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The company themselves had published their sales figures for the past few months. According to it, the company has shipped 15 million phones from October to December. If the rumours are coming true, LG will be eventually joining the companionship of other manufacturing giants in the field of Smartphones using Windows8. That will definitely bring Windows 8to more popularity. After the booming success of Nexus 4, which runs on Android, news of a new Windows 8 smart phone is essentially a feast for those who crave for it.
Though none of these news is authenticated, reports are circulated that LG will be unleashing their new Windows 8 Smartphone this year itself. According to latest news reports, LG is entering the market of Smartphones targeting a sales of 75 million units. Last year, the company sold only 55 million units which is not even comparable to that of Samsung, who is LG’s local rival. Samsung had sold 100 million units in Galaxy S series itself.
Earlier, LG had attempted to release a phone called 'The LG Fantasy', which was a windows 7.5 phone. The reason behind the calling off of that project is not yet revealed by the company. If they are sure to step up with a Windows 8phone, it will be welcomed as there are not much good choice in that genre except Nokia and HTC. If they are coming to front row, they should bring in considerable varieties of their model.
LG has been there under the lime light for a while as their Optimus G, the world’s first Android smartphone with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, gathered attention and attraction of the market. The company had been on the hot talks as the manufacturing of Google’s Nexus 4 handset had been carried out in collaboration with LG.
There are also rumours which exactly contradicts the news of Windows 8phones. It says that LG has abandoned Windows and are to go on with Android. But LG's officials themselves have denied it. Though the rumours are not yet clarified, there is every possibility that LG might have realised the huge scope and potentials of Windows8. Lets hope for the release of a competent gadget from LG soon to fight shoulder to shoulder with the masters of the field.
