LG sold 5 million LTE smartphones, shoots for a 'second to none' LTE lineup soon
LG continues growing sales of its 4G LTE smartphones and can now brag about selling over 5 million of them. Back in June, it had sold 4 million and in May the figure stood at 3 million, so the growth seems pretty steady.

Right now, over 2 million of those 5 come from sales of the LG Optimus LTE and half a million from the Optimus Vu 5-inch phablet. The Koreans don't plan to slow down though. The Optimus Vu is going on a world tour, and one of its first US stops is expected to be Verizon.

And overall, LG plans to have a "second to none" LTE portfolio in the coming months. We don't know what Samsung and the rest think about it, but it's definitely an ambitious goal, don't you think? Hit the PR below, for all the sales details.
