LG sells over 1 million Optimus LTEs in Korea
LG’s Optimus LTE is one of the more successful high-end launches for LG in recent history, and now the figures prove it - the handset has sold in more than 1 million units in its home market of South Korea.

Back in January, LG reported about Optimus LTE sales crossed 1 million units worldwide, and now we can guess that the global sales number has increased hugely as well. It may also be among the best selling LTE phones so far, and 4G LTE is certainly one of the features that allowed it to become so popular.

Now, that falls short of the big sellers like Samsung’s Galaxy S series, which sold over 10 million units in just a couple of months, and even the Galaxy Note which registered over 5 million sales. We do appreciate though LG publishing sales data for its Optimus LTE as more and more companies continue to not give us exact figures, and leave us reliant on analysts rough estimations for the actual state of the mobile industry.

What seems to bring even more promises however is the Optimus LTE successor, the LG Optimus LTE2, the first phone with 2GB of RAM. Are you looking forward to it?

I am really looking forward to LG Optimus LTE2. I want LG to be one of the top if not the top manufacturer. But the question is not if LG can beat samsung? The question is that Is Samsungs lead over LG Too Great to overcome?

You don't know what might happen. Look at apple now, it's slowly weakening due to android.

LG has the potential, they need to sort out their software side first though (esp in updating), once they got that straight, LG will be amazing and might again be on top. it doesn't matter if Samsung is in the lead by a huge margin now, eventually their sales will start dropping. just look at Apple now, their iPhone sales have dropped. it is still high, but dropping
