LG have proudly announced today that their L-Series smartphone range has amassed a sizable 10 million units sold.
Though recognizing that the sales are “modest” in comparison to rivals such as the 30-million selling Galaxy S3 from Samsung, the success of the L-Series Optimus L3, L5, L7 and L9 handsets put LG in a mood bullish enough to have a little pop at the competition in its press release.
“This milestone demonstrates the importance of delivering smartphones with stylish design, comparative size of display and enhanced UX features,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, LG Mobile Communication Company’s president and CEO, a certain nod towards the ongoing spat between Apple and Samsung over their smartphone and tablet designs. LG even go so far in the release as to state their devices have “distinctive” styling, not following a “me too” approach to mobile design.
“Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles.”
That’s one Apple Maps snipe away from an iPhone 5 put-down, right?
