LG’s new flagship smartphone was released in its home country of South Korea and according to local media reports, the device is off to a good start, at least when compared to its predecessor.
The LG G5 sold around 15,000 units on launch day in South Korea while the LG G6 has reportedly sold over 20,000 units on day one. It is safe to say that the initial reception of the LG G6 has been good with reviews praising the handset’s build quality and robust suite of features. Good news for LG.
The G6 is expected to perform much better than its predecessor and some think that it may even surpass the LG G3 which set a global sales record of 10 million units. That would be great for LG if that happened. It should be noted that these figures are for retail sales. LG received more than 40,000 pre-orders for the LG G6 when they were opened up about a week ago so you can see that there’s a lot of interest.
Also LG has yet to release the G6 is other markets around the globe. It’s going to satisfy demand in its home market first. The LG G6 release date for the USA is April 7th. All four major carriers will be selling the handset once it becomes available of course.
