The success of L-series of devices in the market had given LG new hopes and the company now expects to sell 45 million L-series smartphones this year. The company may see a heavy sales boost with its recent launch of L-series II devices.
The President and Chief Executive Officer of LG mobiles, Dr. Jong-Seok Park, said that the company is quite confident about its success with L-series II devices since the smartphone's design is something similar to L-series. With fresh hopes and new devices, LG, is trying to become a leader in the smartphone market. However, as of now, the company is far behind the two mobile giants Samsung and Apple. Samsung and Apple, together contribute to 50 per cent of smartphone sales in the global market.
