LG expects to ship 20% more G4 units than its predecessor
Just a day ago, LG announced its 2015 flagship. Formally that is. The standard one. Despite leaks of all sorts coming in for weeks now and even LG itself getting in on the action, the phone’s specs were somewhat of a mystery until the last few days. When all the dust and commotion settled, some felt a bit disappointed with the presence of a Snapdragon 808 instead of the beefier 810. The manufacturer, on the other hand, doesn’t seem concerned in the slightest; if anything, it’s actually more confident than ever that the G4 will be a super success.
The Korean conglomerate has gone on record to state a projected global shipment estimate of 12 million G4 units. For those keeping track, that comes out to be 20% more than last year’s G3, which was no doubt a major factor in LG’s recent good news. To some, this might seem shocking; to others, it might be perfectly logical. At the end of the day, assuming the sales numbers are on-par with the shipments, it will mean some major financial fortunes will be coming LG’s way.
