LG is planning to unveil a new series of devices that may well be announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this month. The company posted a teaser image of what looks like a present wrapped in a bow on its Facebook page, along with the tagline "New series will be unveiled".
Additionally, the picture credit on Facebook reads as, "See what surprise LG has in store for you this time, with an unexpected distinction." This means we can expect something never seen before.
The image only says "series" hinting at the possibility of both smartphones and tablets. This has users guessing on what it could be. LG's fourth quarter earnings report hinted at a new F-Series that is likely to join the Korean manufacturer's current L-Series and its Optimus G flagship smartphones.
