LG proved with the Optimus G that it can produce a smartphone that stacks up with the best of ‘em, and according to the company’s newly released sales figures, consumers are starting to take notice. As it stands, more than 1 million Optimus G’s have been sold since the handset’s September debut. While the figure pales in comparison to heavyweights like the Galaxy S III and iPhone 5, that’s not too shabby for a phone that’s only been available in North America since November.
Currently available in Korea, Japan, Canada and the United States, an LG spokesperson has hinted that the company reportedly plans to continue their push on the Optimus G throughout the first quarter of this year. Before Q1 is out, the intention is to ship the Optimus G in several European markets and in China. Other reports claim that LG has sold a total of 55 million handsets in 2012 but plans on boosting their sales up to 75 million in 2013.LG has had some troubles in the past few years, but their last Q3 results have shown the company is back on its feet, ready to fight back the big dogs.Who knows the LG Optimus G pro might just give them the much needed boost !
Given the similarities between the LG Optimus G and the Nexus 4, we’re quite curious to know how sales of the two smartphones compare, but Google’s currently keeping those numbers close to its chest. That said, there’s little doubt that LG currently has its hands full at the production line.
