As per reports, the company plans to replace the not-so popular VU lineup with the new series of LG G Stylus.

The Optimus VU was announced back in 2012 during Mobile World Congress but it never proved to be a threat for the much popular Note series from Samsung, which almost rules the market.

However, apart from the name of the new series - G Stylus not much is known about the device but it is expected that LG may be looking to release the phablet in IFA 2014 to be held around September.

The Galaxy Note is super-popular in South Korea. If LG wants to give Samsung a reason to worry about then it will definitely have to raise the benchmark set by Samsung for the phablet-sized smartphones.
