LG Electronics Inc. said Friday it has sold more than 1 million Optimus G smartphones worldwide since the flagship device's launch last year.

 

The milestone comes roughly four months after the South Korean handset manufacturer unveiled the 4.7-inch display phone that runs on Qualcomm Inc's Snapdragon S4 processor introduced two premium smartphones, the LG Optimus G and the LG Optimus Vu.

 

The company has released the Optimus G in Canada, Japan, South Korea and the United States and plans to release the device in China and in several European countries in the first quarter of this year.

 

In the third quarter, LG sold a record of 7 million smartphones globally, compared with its previous high of 6.2 million. Of the total, roughly 2.1 million were long-term evolution smartphones, according to the company.

 

Congrats to LG for the milestone.

 



Samsung CEO JK Shin has recently announced that the Galaxy S III has breached its 50 million mark since it was introduced in May last year. This is an impressive feat that the Galaxy S IV now has to beat. The CEO announced it on the same day he appointed co-CEOs for its different business divisions. Also, during the conference, Samsung had nothing but praises for Android as well as Google, ubut announces that it will be phasing out its Ativ tablet because of lack of demand for Windows-based phones.


Weeks before the Galaxy S IV was unveiled in New York on March 14th, Samsung confidently puts the 100M sales objective for the new flagship device. If any of the rumors about what it can do are true, this might be a reasonable objective to have for the S IV.


Beating S III's sales of over 50 million is already an achievement in itself, all the more if the S IV breaches the 100 million mark. That will surely make the news.

As you probably already know, Samsung Galaxy S4 quickly became the fastest-selling Android phone in history when Samsung announced that channel sales had reached 10 million units in under one month.


While it can't move at that speed forever, RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue predicts sales will hit 80 million units this year.


"Galaxy S-4 demand in the first month of availability has been incrementally better than our estimate of 10M units. In comparison, the S-III took nearly 2 months (50 days) to achieve the 10M units mark. Our broad-based channel checks at U.S. stores indicate that demand for the 16G S-4 devices remains strong with 32G Black devices mostly sold-out and 32G White devices yet to make it to the stores.


"At this pace, the GS-4 is likely to cross 20M shipments in 2Q13, potentially reaching 80M S-4 unit shipments in CY13. We expect the new version of Samsung's Note (III) to hit retail shelves in September. We expect Apple to have an updated multi-device smartphone portfolio [sic] with the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPhone mini this year."


Mark Sue also see global smartphone shipments growing 26% to 870 million units in 2013, and then growing a further 20% in 2014 to just over 1 billion units.


 



The announcement of the remarkable achievement comes from Samsung Mobile Communications chief JK Shin, who also reckons that the recently announced Galaxy Note 3 will "surpass its predecessors". Shin expects the Galaxy Note 3 to sell well over 10 million units.  The Samsung Galaxy Note I hit the market in the fourth quarter of 2011. One year later, the Note II landed. That means Samsung has been selling, on average, 4.75 million Notes a quarter since first introducing the world to the "phablet" product category.


The Samsung executive didn't break down the sales between the two devices. As a reference, the Samsung Galaxy Note II needed just two months to hit 5 million sales. Samsung's successful market performance is certainly in no smart part due to the wide availability of its devices. 


 




Based on Samsung Boss JK Shin, the Galaxy S4, Samsung's first 1080p flagship, continues to be a significant success on the market, 40 million units sold. The development in sales has slowed down lower since that time, with around 5 million models been shipped in August.


That's quite a large number for any device that's been available on the market just for around six several weeks, and Samsung is most likely feeling quite happy about this. Obviously, that does not mean the organization has had simple to use, because it has released the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear, and also the Galaxy Round, the very first smartphone having a curved display, previously handful of several weeks, although it remains seen whether success from the Galaxy  S4 could be duplicated.

 




Samsung sold about  40 million units of Gallaxy Note I and Galaxy Note 2 combined, so expectations regarding the new Galaxy Note 3 are high. And it looks like the device is meeting expectations, at least for the moment.


Launched around the world in September, Samsung has sold 5 million units of Galaxy Note 3 so far - according to Korean website Hankooki, which quotes Samsung Mobile CEO JK Shin.


Currently running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note 3 will be updated to the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat. Unfortunately, there's no official word on when this will happen. But let's hope the update will be ready before the end of the year.


A cheaper version of the Galaxy Note 3 might be introduced sometime in November.  Samsung's other flagship Android smartphone for this year, the Galaxy S4, is also a success - more than 40 million units have been shipped since April.


 




According to Samsung, it said it has sold 10 million Galaxy note 3 units so far.  The phone was release 60 days ago, however, it couldn't beat the 10 million units of Galaxy S4 sold when it was on the market for 50 days.


"10 million global sales of Galaxy Note 3 and thanks to the support of customers around the world, and the future for the people on the basis of innovation and technology to consumers around the world to provide differentiated value will try more."


President & CEO, Samsung Electronics sinjonggyun.


Many tech sites reviewed the Galaxy Note 3 back in October and we called it the best smartphone Samsung has ever made.

Sony made a very good decision when they decided to launch the Xperia Z, their newest flagship phone. They got ahead of the competition literally by getting launched earlier than the others. When it went on sale, people did not really expect it to do so well, especially since the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has already been launched. Aside from the Galaxy S 4, its main rivals include, the HTC One, iPhone 5, Optimus G Pro, among others.


The Xperia Z is a waterproof design that many find vary useful. It can also be recalled that one of its marketing gimmicks in Prague involved a woman and a man showering and using the Xperia Z, while doing so. Furthermore, design-wise, it has a pretty sturdy build.


This phone is actually quite the underdog. Recently, reports have come out that the Xperia Z has already sold over 40 million from the time that it has been launched (40 days). Also, with Sony's dedication to retain this level of quality in their products, the company should already be proud of what the Xperia Z has achieved in a few weeks since it was launched.

Just like last year, the Google I/O proves to be the hottest convention for developers and as soon as tickets were laid out, it didn't take long for the event to sell out. This year, Google will probably detail the Google Glass, which was introduced last year and possibly some other secret tech demo that will happen exclusively on that event.


Regular tickets cost $900 and discounted ones for those in the academe and students go for $300 each. There will be lots of free items for attendees, which will really make the amount well worth it. Furthermore, it is an experience that upcoming developers and brilliant people will definitely be able to use. It is a convention where like-minded people will converge.


For many, it is an opportunity to rub elbows with the experts and exchange ideas. It will be held on May 15th to 17th.
