LG is hinting that a refresh to its smartphone line is coming.

The company posted an image of a wrapped package on its LG Mobile Facebook page last night. The package has text on top of it reading, "New series will be unveiled." LG's description of the image says that the "surprise" will come with "an unexpected distinction."

LG provided no further details on the "surprise" and didn't say when its product or products might be unveiled. However, Mobile World Congress will be held in Barcelona later this month, and that would be the logical place for LG to unveil its latest creation.

In April, LG is expected to launch in Japan the Optimus G Pro, a handset that comes with a 1.7GHz quad-core processors and 5-inch display. However, the company has said it has no plans to launch that handset elsewhere around the world. So whatever it has planned, the mystery smartphones could be something we haven't seen yet.

CNET has contacted LG for comment on the Facebook post. We will update this story when we have more information.
