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.

On a side note, Samsung is still the market leader in the US with a 33% market share in the same period.

LG Optimus G Pro details leak online
News from CNET Australia:

LG’s Optimus G Pro will allegedly pack a 5-inch display, a 1.7GHz processor and a 13-megapixel rear camera, according to details that have appeared on the web.

(Credit: Ribelick)

A leaked slide sent to tech news site Engadget teased a host of alleged details about the Optimus G Pro. If the slide is on the money, the new smartphone would sport a 5-inch 1920×1080-pixel display, and tap into a 1.7GHz Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon processor for its power.

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.

LG Optimus Vu Review: An Impressive Phone Held Back by Clumsy …

LG Optimus Vu Review: An Impressive Phone Held Back by Clumsy …
News from PCWorld:

On paper, the LG Optimus Vu (currently available only in South Korea) sounds like a killer phone: It has a high-resolution display, a speedy processor, and NFC (near-field communication), and is LTE-compatible. However, the phone itself doesn’t live up to what you see on the spec sheet, and you’re left feeling let down by what could have been a superb product. The disappointments include an awkward design, a nonremovable battery, and some software that felt a little undercooked.

Design

Much like Samsung’s wildly popular Galaxy Note, the Vu is a tablet-size phone–casually referred to as a “phablet”. The Vu’s 5-inch IPS display has the same resolution as the original iPad (1024 by 768) and is one of the phone’s defining features. Unlike other phones, the Vu has a 4:3 aspect ratio–a rarity now that most modern smartphones are shipping with widescreen displays. This works to the Vu’s advantage when it comes to presenting Web pages, since most websites and docume…………… continues on PCWorld

LG 4X HD P880 review
News from Wired.co.uk:

The HTC One X might have been first out of the quad-core traps, but it’s since been followed by the Samsung Galaxy S3 and now it’s the turn of the LG 4X HD, which does its best to beat Samsung and HTC’s much-hyped powerhouses at their own game.

Design
At first glance, the 4X HD looks much like the other quad-core mobiles, and half a dozen other outsize Androids, but look a little closer and it has a distinctive double metal trim around the sides flanking a tactile, ridged centre. The thin plastic back also has a distinctive feel, with a ridged pattern that looks and feels a little like wood grain.

The 4X HD is a little smaller at 132x68x9mm than the S3′s 137x71x9mm but not enough to really notice. The capacitive screen’s ever so slightly smaller too (4.7-inches as opposed to 4.8-inches on the S3) and takes up most of the front, with just a thin strip above and below.

The True HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has the same resolution as the S3′s Super Amoled and the One X’s Super LCD at 1280×720 pixels, with 313 pixels-per-inch. In truth, you won’t be disappointed with any of these screens. They all deliver deep blacks…………… continues on Wired.co.uk

Nokia not worried by LG pulling back on Windows Phone

Nokia not worried by LG pulling back on Windows Phone
News from FierceWireless:

NEW ORLEANS–Nokia (NYSE:NOK) is not concerned by LG Electronics’ decision to focus more on smartphones running Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android platform and less on Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone, a senior Nokia executive said.  

In an interview with FierceWireless here, Chris Weber, Nokia’s president for the Americas, said he did not think LG was a major Windows Phone player and that the company’s decision to pull back will not have a significant negative impact on the Windows Phone market. (LG has said it is not “giving up” on Windows Phone but instead focusing on Android.) Nokia has staked its smartphone future to the success of Microsoft’s operating system.

“I see significant commitment from HTC, Samsung,” Weber said. “I actually see increased momentum and commitment form a various set of OEMs on the platform.” He added that another way to measure the momentum of the platform is in the number of third-party applications it has. Microsoft currently has 80,000 apps compared to around 7,000 a year ago.

While Weber declined to discuss specific sales figures for the LTE-capable Lumia 900, the company’s flagship device from AT&T Mobility (

LG shrugs off doubt, comes back with vengeance

LG shrugs off doubt, comes back with vengeance
News from Korea Times:

LG Chairman Koo Bon-moo, center in the front row, makes comments after he was briefed over the company’s sales strategy for OLED 3D televisions during his visit to LG’s technology compound, this month. At left in the same row is LG Uplus CEO Lee Sang-chul and LG Electronics Chief Technology Officer Ahn Seung-kwon is on Koo’s right. / Korea Times file

Chairman boosts can-do spirit in workforce, affiliates respond with better bottom lines

By Kim Yoo-chul

LG Group is recovering with the group’s export-driven affiliates including LG Electronics, LG Display, LG Chem and LG Innotek leading the way.

And the industrial conglomerate is set for another impressive chapter in its story this year led by Chairman Koo Bon-moo as it is returning to basics ― a technology-driven corporation.

Koo is the eldest grandson of LG Group founder Koo In-hwe and has been in his current post since 1995. He is credited with boosting the group’s sales four-fold and its market capitalization 10 times.

“Last year wasn’t good. But this year we have no doubt that the group will regain its power buoyed by the brighter performance of LG Group companies. That’s partly due to the chairman’s consistent request for technology,’’ sai…………… continues on Korea Times

LG: LTE, 3D, HD and quad-core chips will restore our phone brand
News from GigaOm:

“I think LTE, high-definition and quad-core will be the key words this year. With fine-tuned technology and strategies, LG will recover our once-lost brand awareness,’’

That’s the plan for 2012, according to Park Jong-seok, head of LG’s handset division, in a comment to The Korea Times. Park said the company plans to sell 80 million handsets this year; 35 million of which will be smartphones and 8 million of those to have LTE capabilities.

The company’s smartphone division has undergone some challenges over the past two years. In 2010, LG’s CEO resigned mainly due to poor performance in the smartphone division. And midway through last year, Park cut smartphone sales estimates to 24 million sales in 2011, down from 30 million.

Unfortunately, adding hardware features alone isn’t a magical formula to smartphone success and I hope that LG realizes that. It was among the first to use a dual-core smartphone chip in 2011 with the Optimus 2X, but the phone didn’t impress the market. And i…………… continues on GigaOm
