LG aiming to sell 10 million LG G4 smartphones in 2015


LG seems to be quite confident of the success of its next flagship – the LG G4 – as it intends to sell around 10 million G4s by the end of 2015.

The South Korean consumer electronics giant is expecting that the yet-to-be released flagship LG G4 will even do better than its predecessor LG G3, which managed to sell somewhere between 6 to 7 million handsets.

“LG Electronics aims to achieve the 10 million sales target of the G4 smartphone, which will be unveiled next month. Specification of the G4 and changes we’ve made had been briefed to top outlet channels and European carriers during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) fair. Initial response was good enough,” an LG official told Korean Times.

“LG knows this year will be very crucial whether to maintain a stable lead as the world’s third-biggest smartphone producer in annual sales by widening gaps with our Chinese rivals, such as Xiaomi. LG will actively respond,” the official added.

The official noted that the company is planning to launch a massive promotional campaign in key locations in Europe, Korea and the US to achieve its target.

LG G4 is rumored to feature a 5.5 inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a eight core Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm, 3GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel rear camera and a range of storage options plus a microSD card slot and a fingerprint scanner.

The LG G4 is expected to get launched sometime next month, although there’s no word on an exact release date yet.
