The company said today it had sold an Optimus L Series device globally every second over the past two months, taking total global sales to over 15 million units.
According to LG’s Head of Mobile Communications Australia, Jonathan Banks, since its launch at Mobile World Congress (MWC) last year, Optimus L Series smartphones have become the “device of choice for individuals around the world who favour a well-balanced smartphone with a unique design.”
Banks said that LG would be building on the sales momentum by unveiling a new generation of the Optimus L series at MWC 2013 with an upgraded design and improved features.
Banks said that the success of the Optimus L Series globally confirmed LG’s belief that there was a market for well-balanced smartphones that represented “unique consumer tastes.”
“The new Optimus L SeriesII expands upon the design philosophy of the original series so we’re confident that LG will have another hit on its hands.
“In Australia, the launch of the first range of L Series devices, L2 Dual Sim, L3, L5, L7 and L9, has delivered fantastic growth for the local business.
“Based on market share, LG Mobile is now the number two smartphone brand for ‘pre-paid’ customers and the number three player in the Android ecosystem off the back of the 2012 launch of these handsets.”
LG’s new Optimus L SeriesII smartphones will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress later this month.
