LG’s flagship Optimus G, a smartphone that runs on Qualcomm Inc.’s Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, has sole some-more than one-million units given a recover 4 months ago, reports Yonhap News. Sales started in Korea in Sep 2012, before relocating to a rest of a universe in October.
While this is a good and sincerely plain opening for LG, it is also utterly divulgence of how distantly distant behind a rest of a world’s mobile manufacturers are opposite a large guys, Samsung and Apple. The Galaxy S III, for instance, sole 10-million units in reduction than dual months and has achieved some-more than 40-million sales given May 2012, about as most as LG achieved for all of a handsets. The iPhone 5 sole some-more than 5 million units 3 days after launch and dual million units in a initial weekend in China.
LG yet is upbeat, maybe some-more hopeful, about expansion for a future, raised sales of 45-million smartphones for 2013. With a time it took for a Optimus G, one of dual flagship models expelled so far, to grasp one million sales, that competence be a overpass too far. Coupling this with a new check of Nexus 4 shipments, and it is starting to sound some-more like a flattering design being embellished than reality. The Nexus 4 is essentially a same phone as a LG Optimus G, despite in a opposite package.
Yet LG does seem to have a bit of a devise adult a sleeve, with a skeleton of removing into a Windows Phone 8 game. As a comparison executive from one of LG’s partners told The Korea Times: “We will recover utterly a series of new Optimus inclination this year, and LG also has some new smartphones in a works that will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.” It substantially still cannot be enough, though hopefully removing another actor in a marketplace is never a bad thing.
