Only 2 million LG G2s sold until now? Sales reportedly affected by the launch of Nexus 5
Earlier this year, when LG released its G2 flagship smartphone, it said that it hoped to sell 10 million units around the globe. However, it doesn’t look like the company’s expectations will be met.
According to a DigiTimes report based on the chatter of unnamed industry sources, LG sold just over 2 million G2 units until now. Allegedly, the release of Google Nexus 5 shortly after the G2 affected sales of the latter. The Nexus 5 is significantly cheaper, while offering a relatively similar set of specs. The new Nexus also has the advantage of offering Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, while the G2 is still running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. You can check out our Nexus 5 vs LG G2 article for a closer look at the two handsets and the differences between them.
Since the Nexus 5 is also made by LG, the South Korean company is probably not too affected by this. And perhaps the manufacturer will have better luck with its next flagship smartphone, the G3 (expected to be released in the second half of 2014).
DigiTimes also talks about the low sales numbers of HTC’s One and Huawei’s Ascend P6. While exact sales figures for HTC’s flagship aren’t known, the P6 seems to have been sold in about 3 million units (7 million less than Huawei was planning to sell). The Taiwanese publication further notes that disappointing sales of flagship devices could seriously affect market share rankings next year. However, it's too early to tell if that's the case, as we first have to wait for official figures from manufacturers to have a clear view of the whole picture.
