LG’s L-Series devices – the L3, L5 and L7 – have all been released in Canada at various carriers such as Koodo, Rogers, Chatr and Fido. These smartphones all run Android, have different specs and according to LG all represent a “timeless design with finer details.” The Optimus L9 is the only device not to have made it to Canadian soil, but in a press release today LG declared they’ve successfully sold over 10 million units since being introduced last year. That’s a solid accomplishment and LG noted this milestone “is proof that many consumers want attractive smartphones with distinctive — not “me too” — styling.”
The latest stats from research firm IDC indicated LG shipped 14 million smartphones in Q3 2012 and captured 3.1% market share, with Samsung, Nokia and Apple all in front of them. However, LG seems to be on a roll with a couple handsets, specifically the Google Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G.
Without naming names, Dr. Jong-seok Park, President & CEO of LG Mobile, took a swipe at his competition by saying “Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles.”
