Samsung isn’t the only Korean giant that is making waves in the mobile industry. There’s LG doing great in the market with smartphones sales improving during the previous 3rd quarter.
During the 2nd quarter of this year, LG sold 12.1 million smartphones. In Q3, almost the same number with 12 million units but saw a 24 percent increase compared to last year, same period–worth $2.75 billon.
