LG Optimus G Pro 1m sales
The Optimus G Pro, LG’s latest flagship Android handset, was first released and made available about four months ago in LG’s home country of South Korea. It took the Korean company quite a bit of time to start selling the said handset in other Asian countries — it only got around to it at the end of May — but it appears that that hasn’t stopped the phone from becoming a best-seller at all.

Today, LG is proud to announce that the flagship Optimus G Pro has finally hit the 1 million unit sales point over in its homeland, with daily sales averaging at about 8,000 units per day. According to the official press release, this represents the fastest time LG has achieved a 1 million unit sales target with a phone in its home country, and as you might have guessed, it is a cause for celebration. For reference, the LG Optimus LTE took a whole 7 months to hit 1 million.

Many of those 1 million Optimus G Pro buyers were probably enamored with the phone’s impressive specs, which include a huge Full HD IPS display, LTE connectivity, and exclusive software features. If you’ve already watched our Optimus G Pro review, you probably already know all about those.

    Great news! LG has been a little bit slow going but it turns out the Nexus 4 was a good thing. The Optimus G Pro is too many names but it’s a hell of a phone!

    Congrats, LG! Who’s up next?
