LG released its current flagship smartphone in South Korea about three months back and according to a new report it hasn’t seen the kind of response from customers that it might have hoped for. According to a new report LG G4 sales have grossly underperformed in the company’s home market of South Korea, it’s said to trail far behind the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge from local rival Samsung in terms of sales over the past three months.
Apparently LG was only able to sell 240,000 units of the G4 by the end of last month which just isn’t the kind of response that the company would have crossed its fingers for.
It pales in comparison to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung’s flagship duo has managed to sell over 1.3 million units combined in South Korea by the end of last month.
LG reportedly had planned to sell more than 70 million handsets globally this year but it may have to revise those expectations following underperforming sales of its flagship, which also raises the question about the G4’s performance in the global market.
Even though the LG G4 is a robust device with specifications and features to rival the best of them, if the handset’s performance in the market doesn’t improve it may not be a huge help in getting LG to its target of selling 70 million smartphones by the end of this year.
