LG has launched its latest flagship device, the LG G3, last month, which may help the company improve its sales. The handset has already sold 100,000 units in the first five days of launch in the company’s home country, with an expected launch to take place in July for major markets.
Now, according to a report from Taiwanese shores, citing supply chain sources, LG is expected to ship 15 to 16 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2014.
LG Electronics is expected to see its smartphone shipments grow 20-30% sequentially to 15-16 million units in the second quarter of 2014, buoyed by the brisk sales of its latest flagship model, the LG G3, according to sources at the handset supply chain in Taiwan.
Sales of the LG G3 reached 100,000 units in the first five days in Korea since its launch at the end of May, the sources noted. The LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch QHD display, Qualcomm 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 13-megapixel camera.
There’s no denying that LG G3 is one of the best smartphone available in the market, offering solid specifications and a very good design. The handset is yet to hit major international markets, with it’s launch expected to take place in July.
Secondly, the news surfaced from Digitimes, who is citing their usual supply chain sources, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. LG could achieve these sales, but a word from the company would be more compelling then Digitimes. We’ll update you as soon as some figures show up
