LG Optimus G Pro reaches 1 million sales in South Korea
The LG Optimus G Pro has reached the one million sales milestone in the company’s home country of South Korea. It took the phablet about four months to achieve this number of shipments. The Optimus G Pro’s first 500,000 sales in South Korea occurred over a period of just 40 days, as we told you back in April.
The Optimus G Pro is LG’s first handset to reach 1 million sold in such a short amount of time. The previous LG device to get to the 1 million mark fastest was the Optimus LTE, but it needed three more months to do so compared to the Optimus G Pro. So clearly, Koreans are more and more enamored with LG’s smartphones of late. Then again, Koreans pretty much love every new gadget that is released by the country’s three major phone makers (count Samsung and Pantech alongside LG), so this is hardly surprising.
Around 8,000 units have been sold in South Korea each day since the device was launched, aside from the launch day when 10,000 devices were sold.
We would be interested to find out how well the Optimus G Pro has been doing, sales-wise, across all territories in which it’s being sold, but that’s presumably a statistic for another day.
