LG may be back as the second top phone manufacturer in the US

LG may be back as the second top phone manufacturer in the US
News from GSMArena.com:

Yup, after years of poor performance in the mobile phone sector, LG may actually be back on track. We last heard that they’ve sold some 55 million handsets in 2012, even though their Optimus G was not doing terribly well, selling only 1 million units during the first 4 months of its availability.

But hey, perhaps due to the incredible popularity of the competitively priced and Google-sanctioned LG Nexus 4 (pictured left), LG managed to outgrow Apple’s 13% US market share.

According to Counterpoint Research, LG actually scored a market share of 14% in the US. Now how’s that for a comeback? We are yet to see where this would take them in the quarter that lies ahead.

Of course, we would advise anyone at LG to wait for a second confirmation from another market research agency before popping up that champagne.

Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Pro model would include 2GB of memory, 32GB of storage and support for long-term evolution (LTE). Also along for the ride would be a 2.4-megapixel camera in front, and a 13-megapixel camera on the back.

Many of those specs would be improvements over those found in the Optimus G, though certain variants of the current model already include some of those features.
