LG to ship 15 to 16 million smartphones this quarter
According to the Taiwan based handset supply chain, LG is expected to ship 15-16 million smartphones in the current quarter. That would be a healthy 20% to 30% increase sequentially from the first quarter. The increased shipments are due to the launch of the company's latest flagship phone, the LG G3. 100,000 units of the new smartphone were sold in Korea in the first five days after its launch at the end of last month.

The sources expect LG to ship 10 to 12 million units of the LG G3 over the model's life cycle. The device is the sequel to the LG G2, which turned out to be a very popular top-shelf model for the manufacturer. In fact, it was named by us as one of the best smartphones of 2013.

The LG G3 will have the distinction of being the first handset shipped to the U.S. carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution on its 5.5 inch glass. The phone faces competition globally from the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8).

Hell yea, finally another hand in the cookie jar. Hopefully this starts a ridiculous hardware/software war (not patents) and boosts competition.

Nice. This would be good for competition for sure. I hope LG can hit some good numbers to make others make greater phones. LG G3 does impress me and a lot of people. Can't wait what Nexus can offer which I hope still will continue.

Btw, lg expected that the G2 would sell 10 million devices but the sales fell short of 4 million even though the g2 was and still is one of the best smartphone around, even htc with its amazing one m8 is still financially troubled so nothing is guaranteed ....apparently a strong flagship is no longer what makes money, I wonder what does

"The phone faces competition globally from the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8)". I suppose the main competitor is the SGS5, because HTC can't sell phones on Brazil... Two years ago, the company decided not to sell in our market anymore (the 8th biggest in units sold).
