According to a recent report issued by Strategy Analytics, LG, which is now the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the United States in terms of market share, is expected to sell roughly 15 million smartphones in the upcoming trimester. This means that the Korean company might retail around 5 million devices a month, which would make the upcoming quarter the most successful one for LG. This would trump the company's average monthly sales of about 4.4 million devices in some of the previous quarters.

The company's success is mostly due to the sales of devices from the F and L families. Critically-acclaimed devices such as the LG G2 are rather popular among customers, too, but the sales of the current flagship can't stand up to the sheer numbers of mid-range LG devices that were retailed. The LG G2 mini might appear to be another pretty successful smartphone, which could be one of the pillars of the Korean company.

The company is bound to release its next flagship, the rumored LG G3, later this year, and the expectations for the device are very high. The smartphone will have to stand up to the flagships that Samsung, Sony, and HTC already revealed. Rumor has it that the G3 will be both water and dustproof and might sport a 5.5-inch display with a whopping resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The LG G2 mini might appear to be another pretty successful smartphone, which could be one of the pillars of the Korean company.
