Company expects to sell 45 million smartphones in 2013

LG announces 1m Optimus G sales

LG has revealed that its Flagship Optimus G smartphone has sold over one million units in four months.

While the company is optimistic about growth in 2013, the one million Optimus G sales puts the device significantly behind its rivals, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 5.

LG expects to sell 45 million smartphones in 2013, although this could be a challenge seeing as the company only sold seven million in Q3 of 2012.

The iPhone 5 managed to ship two million units in just the first weekend of mainland sales in China alone. LG may have some way to go before its smartphone range reaches that kind of hype, but Nexus 4 sales should help the firm claw closer to its 45 million sales target.
