LG may not have the same level of notoriety as the flagship smartphones from its Korean rival Samsung, but the company today announced that it has sold millions of its L-Series smartphones. That's not as impressive as the 30 million Galaxy S III's Samsung sold in recent months, but it's a "modest milestone" on which LG can hang its hat.
LG has struggled to gain traction as an Android device maker, a field first lead by HTC and now dominated by Samsung. The combined sales of the Optimus L3, Optimus L5, Optimus L7, and Optimus L9 phones have surpassed the 10 million mark after becoming available in 50 markets. The LG Optimus G series will add to the company's end of the year sales total, and along with the Optimus L series, support LG's narrative that its hardware and software designs better its rivals.
LG CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park released the following statement along with the L Series sales announcement:
"This milestone demonstrates the importance of delivering smartphones with stylish design, comparative size of display and enhanced UX features. Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles."source: LG
