OptimusLG was one of the first OEMs to jump aboard the Windows Phone bandwagon, but their devices were lacklustre, went largely unsupported and the company never released a second generation running Mango.

Now after having some success with Android the company is set to be back with a second try, and this time with handsets running Windows Phone 8.

The rumours of the company’s re-entry dates back to 3 weeks ago, when a senior executive of one of their partners told KoreaTimes:

We will release quite a number of new Optimus devices this year and LG also has some new smartphones in the works, that will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.

Now rumours are circling that LG will announce this range at Mobile World Congress.  In their teaser video they teased their coming MWC announcement with superlatives such as "Premium, Ultimate, Innovative, Powerful and Professional." Lets hope the company this time lives up to their promise.

See their MWC video teaser after the break.

Thanks Arun for the tip.
