SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s LG Electronics unveiled a revamped version of its large-screen smartphone G Pro on Thursday, hoping it will help propel the company to the No. 3 spot in global smartphone sales this year.

LG Electronics, currently ranked No. 4, is seeking to move past Huawei Technologies Co Ltd as well as Lenovo Group which recently agreed to buy Google Inc’s Motorola handset division for $ 2.9 billion. The deal, if approved by regulators, would catapult Lenovo from No. 5 to No. 3 – a threat that LG Electronics executives shrugged off.

LG G Flex phone has stylish curves, but what’s the point?
News from Salt Lake Tribune:

Tech » A good Android phone with all the features, but also a curved screen that adds nothing.

Sometimes a technological advancement is made and the people who created it have no idea what to do with it.

That may be the case with new flexible LCD display screens. For years, engineers have been perfecting LCD screens that can bend and roll, which they believe might be useful in a number of applications. Samsung and LG, for example, introduced last month at the annual Consumer Electronics Show gigantic TVs that at the push of a button can go from flat to slightly curved. Why they would do that, I don’t have a clue.

LG Electronics posts loss after EU fine
News from Financial Times:

LG Electronics, the world’s second-largest television maker by revenue, reported an unexpected loss for the fourth quarter as a big fine in the EU for price-fixing outweighed an improved performance in its mobile phone business.

The South Korean company suffered a net loss of Won468bn ($ 432m) in the October-December period, widening from a Won112bn loss a year earlier.

In December, LG, which derives about half of its sales from TVs, was fined €492m by the EU antitrust regulator as part of a record combined €1.47bn price fixing penalty on cathode-ray tube TV makers including Philips, Panasonic and Toshiba.

The profit margin at LG’s TV business shrank to 0.3 per cent in the fourth quarter from 0.8 per cent in the third quarter due to slowing…………… continues on Financial Times

Apple Ousts Samsung As No.1 Mobile Maker In US In Q4 2012 — Taking …
News from TechCrunch:

Apple took the title of largest mobile maker by volume in the U.S. in Q4 2012, according to Strategy Analytics, which said Cupertino rose to the top of the U.S. phone maker charts for the first time ever — taking a record 34 per cent market share, and shipping an estimated 17.7 million units in the quarter. Samsung came second, with a 32.3 per cent share, shipping 16.8 million smartphones. Third place went to LG — but the company was far behind Apple and Samsung, with only a nine per cent share, and shipments of 4.7 million units.

However, despite losing out to Apple in Q4, Samsung came out on top in the U.S. for the full year 2012 — taking a 31.8 per cent share of the market vs Apple’s 26.2 per cent. LG took 12.3 per cent for the full year.

Strategy Analytics said generous carrier subsidies and extensive marketing of the new iPhone 5 model helped Apple to claim the U.S. mobile crown in Q4 — taking the title from Samsung which had held it since 2008. Samsung still put in a good performance in the fourth quarter, according to the analyst — which noted that its market share rose five points from a year earlier. However this increase was “not enough to hold off a surging Apple”, it said.

As for LG, while it remains the third largest player in the U.S. it has struggled to compete with “an Apple…………… continues on TechCrunch

LG Electronics Posts 3rd-Quarter Profit on Phone Earnings

LG Electronics Posts 3rd-Quarter Profit on Phone Earnings
News from Businessweek:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), South Korea’s second-largest mobile-phone maker, returned to profit in the third quarter on earnings from handset sales.

Net income was 157.1 billion won in the three months ended Sept. 30, compared with a loss of 413.9 billion won a year earlier, Seoul-based LG said in a statement today. The average of 22 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg was for a profit of 158.6 billion won.

The company is counting on its Optimus line of smartphones running Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android operating system to compete with Apple Inc.’s iPhone and Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy devices, while cutting production of cheaper basic phones. LG also seeks to capitalize on demand for computer-like TVs and other appliances to fuel growth.

“They are improving,” Lim Dori, a Seoul-based analyst at Shinyoung Securities Co., said by phone before today’s announcement. “The handset business is steadily getting back on track. In home appliances, LG is competitive, widening their lead over smaller rivals.”

Korea Corporate Bond Sales Jump as LG Electronics Boosts Issue

Korea Corporate Bond Sales Jump as LG Electronics Boosts Issue
News from Bloomberg:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570)’s first won- denominated note sale in a year helped corporate bond offerings in the currency rise almost fivefold this week as a slowing South Korean economy pushed yields to historic lows.

Issuance increased to 1.36 trillion won ($ 1.2 billion) from 280 billion won last week, data compiled by Bloomberg shows. Yields on three-year AA-rated corporate notes fell to 3.24 percent on Sept. 5, the least since the Korean Financial Investment Association started compiling data in 1993. Similarly-rated U.S. corporate securities yielded 2.13 percent yesterday, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch indexes.

LG, the world’s No. 4 mobile-phone maker, took advantage of plunging yields by increasing the size of its offering 50 percent to 300 billion won, the data show. Asia’s fourth-largest economy failed to meet the central bank’s growth estimates, according to a re…………… continues on Bloomberg

LG Electronics Profit Beats Estimates on TVs, Mobiles

LG Electronics Profit Beats Estimates on TVs, Mobiles
News from BusinessWeek:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), the world’s second-largest television maker, reported first-quarter profit that exceeded analyst estimates as TV and smartphone sales led earnings gains at its main businesses.

The company had net income of 242.5 billion won ($ 213 million) in the three months ended March 31, compared with a loss of 15.8 billion won a year earlier, Seoul-based LG said in a statement today. The average of 20 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg was for a profit of 181.9 billion won.

Profit at LG’s home-entertainment unit was boosted by sales of high-end TVs featuring 3-D screens and Web-based services, while new devices using Google Inc.’s Android software helped the mobile-phone business return to profit. LG is racing to introduce new smartphones and TVs to narrow the gap with Samsung Electronics Co. (005930) and recover market-share losses in mobile phones to its South Korean competitor and Apple Inc.

“The TV side is improving a lot, nearly showing the best profitability ever, as their product mix is getting better,” Kim Ji San, a Seoul-based analyst at Kiwoom Securities Co., said by phone. “Investors have been the most worried about the mobile business, but profit is widening there, as well.”

LG fell 1.3 percent to 77,700 won at the close of trading in Seoul, after rising as much as 2.3 percent, while the ben…………… continues on BusinessWeek

In the Black, Company Reports Significant Improvement by
Focusing on Higher Margins and Efficient Operation

SEOUL, Apr. 25, 2012 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced that after two consecutive quarters of net losses, the company has turned the corner with a net profit of KRW 243 billion (USD 214.9 million), a direct result of the company’s efforts to innovate in all key business units and focus on high performing products.

Prada phone by LG 3.0 review
News from Engadget:

LG and Prada have a history of collaboration; their debut phone arrived around the same time as the first iPhone, sporting a black and white display, a petite footprint and a 2-megapixel camera. Next, the Prada II brandished a sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera and arrived at a time when WiFi functionality was a big enough deal to note on the press release. Four years on, the pair have rolled their sleeves and attempted to reclaim a place among the top devices, with classy aesthetics backed up by a strong hardware and attractively customized software. This is the team’s first attempt at an Android device, and on paper it’s got some respectable specifications, including a 4.3-inch NOVA Plus display, a dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera sensor that appears to be the same one found on LG’s 2011 flagship models. Granted, LG probably wasn’t ever planning to include its latest HD IPS screen on a phone where branding was dominated by the other partner, but this smartphone still wants to appeal beyond its good looks.<…………… continues on Engadget
