The LG G2 is a stellar smartphone with a rather unique/strange design. However, the hardware on the smartphone was exceptional at the time of launch and anybody would have pegged it to be a huge success in the market. However, a report claims that the smartphone could only have sold over 2 million units so far globally, which isn’t a big number for a company of LG’s stature. Part of the reason for the smartphone’s poor showing in the market is reportedly due to the launch of the Nexus 5 smartphone, which was widely believed to be based off the G2. Most people would have been hesitant on buying the G2 with the hope of seeing something similar (and cheaper) launching within the next few months. So in that sense, it’s not bad news for LG as the sales that didn’t go through with the G2 were accounted for by the Nexus 5. However, we’re not sure LG would have liked its flagship product to be sidetracked after the Nexus 5 was unveiled. This could well be the reason why LG wants to launch the successor to the G2 as early as February 2014.
