Not too long ago, LG released their flagship device for the year dubbed as the LG G3. The handset brings top-of-the-line specifications, and went on sale in South Korea the next day after its launch. According to a new report, LG has managed to sell almost 100,000 units of the LG G3 in the first five days after its launch in its home country. This makes its daily estimated sales to be around 20-30k units, which is very impressive.
If you think about it from another perspective, it makes sense for the handset to reach this milestone since it outperforms most of the flagship devices — Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. The handset brings the best possible hardware specifications available at the moment, with the most notable one being its 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Under the hood, there’s a Snapdragon 801 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage on board. If you want to save some of your hard-earned cash, there’s a version with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot as well. On the back, there’s a 13MP camera with laser auto focus and optical image stabilization plus.
There’s a 3,000 mAh battery as well to make sure the device doesn’t run out of juice, and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system with a flatter UI.
This isn’t close to what Samsung sold in its opening weekend, but we should disregard the fact that it launch in over 100 countries at the same time, while the LG G3 is only available in Korea at the moment.
The device is expected to hit other regions by next month, and we’ll find out more about its sales figures, and if it can boost the sales in the competing markets as well.
