LG arrived at this year's Mobile World Congress with no less than eight new smartphones, including the G2 mini, G Pro 2, G Flex, as well as the F Series and L Series. Gathered under the "Knock and Discover Tomorrow" theme, these devices were shown off in three zones, namely Knock and Create, Knock and Play, Knock and Connect.
Next to the handsets mentioned above, the unique UX features introduced by LG, including the innovative Knock Code unlocking technology, helped the company grab the Most Innovative Device Manufacturer of the Year award in Barcelona. "Impressive across the board with ground-breaking innovation – LG is flexing its technological muscle," commented the judges.
LG's vice president of Mobile Marketing Communications Chris Yie said "We are incredibly humbled that GSMA selected LG from among the many capable companies in the mobile industry to honor with this award."
Last year, the Best Smartphone award went to LG, but this time HTC managed to get it, thanks to the HTC One. An interesting fact worth being mentioned is that the Nokia Lumia 520 was declared this year's Best Low-Cost Smartphone, well ahead of various Android-powered smartphones also priced below $150 USD.
