LG is set to unveil a number of Windows 8 handsets, according to a Korean news website
The Korea Times has reported that LG is planning on creating a number of Windows 8 phones over the course of 2013.
The website claims a (not surprisingly) unnamed LG Executive, said: “We will release quite a number of new Optimus devices this year an LG also has some new smartphones in the works that will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.”
Also rumoured isLG’s plan to reveal a 5.5-inch full HD smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
LG recently revealed its sales figures for the past few months; shipping some 15 million phones from October to December.
Of course, without an official announcement it remains merely a rumour; however it would certainly make sense to bring out a handset for those preferring Windows 8 after the roaring success of LG’s Nexus 4 which runs the Android OS.
Predictably, G.W. Kim, the company’s spokesman has declined to comment.
