LG’s smartphone sales could have increased by 25% thanks to the G3 series

LG G3

The LG G3 was one of the first devices in 2014 to pack a QHD resolution display. And this played a crucial role in the success of the smartphone in general. However, the company subsequently launched variants based on the G3 series sporting midrange hardware and budget price tags.

It is now being said that sales of the G3 and its corresponding devices might have led to strong sales year-on-year. Multiple reports suggest that the company might have posted 25% increase in sales compared to the previous year, thanks largely to the G3 series.

This number takes the entirety of 2014 into account and since the G3 was only available since June in the markets, this is a commendable achievement for the company. LG recently unveiled the G Flex 2 which is expected to launch in South Korea later this month and arrive in global markets subsequently, so the company will hope to use some of the momentum from last year going into 2015.

The G4 flagship isn’t expected to arrive until later this year, so we might have to wait a bit before seeing the next G series flagship. However, with the MWC kicking off in March, we might catch a bunch of new midrange devices from the company, which have been instrumental in driving the sales numbers for the company.
