LG expects to sell 10 million units of the LG G2
The LG G2 has everything that buyers of top-of-the-line smartphones look for. It has fabulous specs including a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood. Game players will be heartened by the Adreno 330 GPU and multi-taskers will become downright giddy with the 3GB of RAM expected on the slate. Throw in a unique design that moves all buttons to the back of the phone, and you have a device that is so hot it could fry an egg on its 5.2 inch 1080 x 1920 FHD display.

Thursday morning, a published report came out indicating that the Korean manufacturer has a sales target of 10 million units for the phone. To put that in perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S4 sold that many units in its first month. Don't get us wrong here. We're not saying that Samsung's flagship model should be outselling the LG G2 by a huge number. No, we're saying that perhaps it will turn out that LG underestimated demand for the LG G2.

Still, LG does need to tread softly considering that its previous top-selling models were the low-priced L Series that altogether sold 10 million phones globally. But the LG G2 does have what it takes to really ring the cash register. It's not going to be easy and there is a ton of competition. Consider that the Sony Xperia Z now is carrier branded in the states and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could be just 6-7 weeks away. The third and fourth quarters of this year are going to be very interesting in the world of Android.

Koreans will immediately buy the g2 once it comes out of the market. Before the companies that were battling in korea were apple and samsung but now it's samsung and lg

I hope this is a hit. I'm rooting for LG and SONY right now. I'm planning on being one of those projected 10 million.

I'm looking forward to the Sony Honami and the LG G2. If LG is late to release this to my country, I will choose the Honami. So LG, don't be late again!

WOW, looks like a Samsung "Galaxy LG", in my humble opinion... Too bad it doesn't have the S4 features, or receive the timely updates that Samsung devices are known for... :/ Also with a low 10 million sales target, maybe the speculators and analysts will not downgrade the company, hopefully they will reach their target.

"LG underestimated demand for the LG G2" If anything I think it's overestimating. They had to drop the Optimus name just because customers identified it with cheaper phones. (however the G2 name is already taken with android, so that really didn't solve the problem) They also have very little advertising which has proved to hurt HTC even though they had a great phone. Tech companies need to understand money goes into two places, R&D and marketing to be successful.
