At the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona today, LG unveiled the LG G2 Mini. We also have the new L Series III family, a renovated mid-range line formed by the L90, L70 and L40 models, all with Android KitKat.
Was something missing? Probably—like an unconfirmed Nexus 8 tablet and even a device for Google. The Mobile World Congress starts here.

Above you have LG's trailer for the fair. The video puts a lot of emphasis on the taps, as if the screen were a door. The reason? A new application called Knock Code—the software heir to Knock Knock that we saw in the LG G2, which allows you to unlock your smartphone by tapping the screen.
The difference between the two apps is that Knock Code is based on sequence-specific touches. The application will be present on the LG G Pro 2. According to LG, Knock Code will have over 86,000 combinations. Check out a short preview video of how it works:
The LG G Flex and LG G Pro 2
The LG G Flex has received good reviews, and LG insists that by 2018, much of the smartphone market will have curved or flexible screens. They argue that curved screens ensure that devices are easier to use and more comfortable for viewing content.
