Despite their incredibly unimpressive specs, the LG Optimus L series phones are doing quite well in terms of sales. The Korean company announced the L7, L5, and L3 almost one year ago during Mobile World Congress 2012. Since then, we’ve seen the series go past the 10 million sales milestone at the beginning of December. And in around two months, LG’s managed to move 5 million more.
That’s around one device every second for the past two months, LG boasts in its press release. Comically, this went out today by mistake. It was supposed to be out on Sunday. Anyway, the news is out now.
The L series brings decent design features to the masses, and these handsets have an attractive price per features ratio. As such, many people across the globe considered them interesting enough to buy. A powerful low-end and midrange line is essential for success in the smartphone world, and LG is slowly but surely getting there. Now all it needs is a great performer on the high-end, but the upcoming Optimus G Pro may just be that.
LG will officially introduce the new generation of the L series at MWC later this month – the L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II. Details about all of these first surfaced a few days ago.
