LG to Announce 'Tier 1' Smartphone at MWC

LG said during its CES 2013 press conference that the handset manufacturer will be unveiling a 'tier one' smartphone next month during MWC.

James Fishler, the company's senior VP of marketing, said the firm is aiming to launch a slate of high-end phones into the market throughout 2013. "At MWC next month, and throughout the year, we'll be bringing more tier one handsets, in various screen sizes."

As for its more immediate plans, it's expected to unveil the Optimus G2 sometime during this week at CES 2013.

    I like that part. Bring on top-performing 4" phones! (please)

    LG Wouldn't know a good performing phone if it slapped them in the face. The Nexus 4 is underwhelming to say the least, and everything else they have released on the smartphone front for the last couple years has been disappointing.
