LG official confirms 10 million unit sales target for G2
LG has set an ambitious 10 million unit sales target for its G2 flagship. We told you about it back in July.
But it was only a rumor then, based on insider sources of ET News – a Korean site with pretty good track record, but still.
Now it’s official.
Earlier today, during G2 launch event, head of LG Taiwan officially confirmed that they plan to sell at least 10 million new flagships globally. He also set G2 sales target in Taiwan at 20 000 units monthly, with a goal to get to 5% market share in smartphones overall, and 10% among high end devices over there.
Are LG’s plans to sell 10 million G2s realistic?
Despite a pretty annoying Android customizations, LG’s flagship comes with stellar hardware and interesting design. Furthermore, LG has finally figured out its production issues, and is aggressively rolling out G2 around the world, as we speak. Add to that some serious marketing money behind the device, and you can easily expect the new flagship to ship in multiple millions. The only question is “when”, not “if” will LG be able to sell 10 million G2s.
My bet? They will do it before the end of this year.
