LG To Ship 15 Million Smartphones In Q2, Analysts Say

By 01:49 Mon, 19 Jul 2021 Comments

Analysts are predicting a fine quarter for LG – the team at Mirae Asset Securities Co forecasts that the phone manufacturer will sell 15 million smartphones in the April-June quarter or 5 million a month on average.

For comparison, in last year's second quarter LG srecent 12.1 million smartphones, which marked a boost in sales helped mostly by affordable models from the L and F series. That works out to around 4 million smartphones a month. Data by Strategy Analytics show this improved only slightly in Q4 2013 to 4.4 million a month.

This Q2, it will be the affordable handsets that push LG's sales up once again. The L and F series are mention alongside the LG G2 mini. We're still waiting for the price on that one to drop in a lot of markets though – currently many stores in Europe show €350, which is actually more expensive than the gigantic LG G2.

The LG G2 itself or LG's other flagship products were not mentioned as growth drivers for the company. Last year the G2 reportedly srecent 3 million units, there's no info on how it's doing this year after Samsung, HTC and Sony unveiled their recent flagships.
