After just one day of announcing their updated Optimus line, LG published a new release on Thursday stating that their current generation Optimus smartphones have sold over 15 million units worldwide.
The Optimus L Series rolled out nearly a year ago at MWC 2012 and since has sold something of one unit per second.
“The success of the Optimus L Series is testament to our belief that all along that there is indeed a market for well-balanced smartphones that represent individuals’ unique tastes,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new Optimus L SeriesII expands upon the design philosophy of the original series so we’re quite confident that we’ll have another hit on our hands.”
And he’s not kidding. The new ‘hand-’helds will be unveiled at MWC 2013, in Barcelona later this month. The Optimus L Series II (Optimus L3II, Optimus L5II and Optimus L7II) will all feature “comfortable contour with laser-etched details in a slim unibody design.”
We’re definitely excited to see the next generation of LG.
