LG’s mobile division has successfully become the third most successful smartphone manufacturer after strong sales of its smartphones in Q1 2014. The company is trailing the likes of Samsung and Apple which are still quite ahead at the moment. But it’s the first time LG is reaching the 3rd spot, so it’s quite a commendable achievement for the manufacturer.
The company will hope to make further inroads in the smartphone segment with the LG G3 expected to be announced later today and several other midrange offerings sold across the world. Devices like the LG G2 and the Nexus 5 have been crucial in LG’s success as well.
LG has risen as one of the primary Android OEMs over the past couple of years, which was a trend started after the launch of the Nexus 4. The company will obviously want to overtake Apple to grab the second position, but it seems unlikely to happen anytime soon given the vast difference in sales figures between the two companies. However, it wouldn’t take long for LG to start vying for that second place as well.
