LG’s phone sales are way up, but killing plasma TVs had a cost
News from Engadget:

LG is still trailing Samsung and Apple in total smartphone sales (and profits from them), but the company just revealed its financial data for the last year and has plenty to be happy about. It sold 59.1 million smartphones last year, up nearly a quarter from what it moved in 2013. The report didn’t explain when we can expect the

LG smartphone sales surged 25% in 2014, thanks in part to the success of LG G3
News from Digital Trends:

LG Electronics Inc. plays second fiddle to Samsung, its big brother in South Korea, but that hasn’t stopped the company from putting its stamp on the smartphone market. According to industry sources, LG’s smartphone sales grew more than 25 percent year-over-year in 2014, thanks in part to the success of the LG G3.

In 2014, the No. 2 tech company in South Korea shipped an estimated 59.6 million smartphone units, up 25.2 percent from the 47.6 million smartphone units shipped in 2013, according to sources speaking to The Korea Herald. LG, which entered the smartphone market in 2009, shipped 20 million smartphone units in 2011 and 26.3 million units in 2012, according to data from Strategy Analytics.

LG G Flex 2 vs. iPhone 6 Plus
News from Gizmag:

LG’s second stab at a curved and flexible smartphone is a bit less experiment, a bit more flagship. Let’s see how the features and specs of the G Flex 2 compare to those of Apple’s flagship phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus.

Size

The two handsets have identical screen sizes, but the G Flex 2 makes more economical use of its face. It’s 6 percent shorter and 4 percent narrower than the iPhone 6 Plus.

The iPhone is technically 24 percent thinner, but those numbers are skewed a bit, as the G Flex 2 has a tapered back and the above depth only counts its thickest point (it slims down to 7.1 mm at its thinnest points, near the top and bottom edges).

iPhone 6 vs LG G3 comparison: LG’s impressive specs challenge Apple’s flagship
News from ChristianToday:

[Photo credit: Apple]

iPhone 6

Today, the iPhone 6 will go head-to-head with LG G3. These are undeniably two of the hottest handsets to date, so readers stuck with the same picks may turn to this comparison to come to a decision.

wikimediacommons

The Apple iPhone 6, like all other Apple devices, is genuinely classy. With its high-end aluminum casing, LG G3′s faux metal plastic is clearly no match. Nevertheless, LG G3 also looks quite handsome.

The Apple’s flagship is the company’s kickstarter in their full-sized handset line-up. Its screen display measures 4.7 inches diagonally. Nevertheless, the LG G3 trounces this with its 5.5-inch display. This, however, makes the Apple iPhone 6 slimmer and lighter, gauging 6.9 mm and 129 grams, respectively. The LG G3 looks bulky beside the iPhone 6 with its 8.9-mm thickness and 149-gram weight.

The larger of the rivals delivers 1440 x 2560 pixels generating 538 ppi pixel density. Apple brings 750 x 1334 pixels at 326 ppi. The resolution offerings are very much attuned to the phone’s display size, which means sharp and crisp details are expected of the two. Even so, LG G3 has bit of the upperhand in this department.

LG G3 vs Galaxy S5: Specs, design, camera and initial sales
News from Ecumenical News:

Credit: LG Electronics

The newly-launched LG G3 has given people who are looking for a high-end smartphone a new alternative. To consider itself a member of the high-end smartphones category, it needs to compete against other similar devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5.

The following specs show how LG’s top device fares in a LG G3 vs Galaxy S5 comparison.

Chipset, RAM and Storage

LG G3 was rumored to be powered by the new Snapdragon 805 chipset, which was announced last year to be available in 2014. However, the smartphone ended up with a Snapdragon 801. The same goes for the GS5, and most other current top devices.

Both the G3 and GS5 come with either 16GB or 32GB internal storage, which is expandable by microSD cards. The LG G3 come with either 2GB or 3GB RAM, while the GS5 has 2GB RAM.

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 Drops as Analyst Says Phone Sales May Fall Short: Seoul Mover
News from Bloomberg:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), overtaken by Apple Inc. as the world’s third-biggest handset maker, fell the most in a month in Seoul trading after Mirae Asset Securities Co. said the company’s phone sales may miss estimates.

LG dropped as much as 4 percent, the biggest intraday decline since Feb. 23. It traded 2.2 percent lower at 88,000 won as of 2:18 p.m., while South Korea’s benchmark Kospi index gained 0.1 percent.

The handset maker is counting on devices running on faster networks using long-term evolution, or LTE, technology to revive phone sales. Demand for LTE devices in North America, the biggest market, isn’t rising as fast as expected and may not pick up until the second half of this year because of limited coverage, said Lee Soon Hak, a Mirae analyst in Seoul.

“Market expectations of the company’s LTE-phone sales need to be lowered,” Lee, who kept his rating on the stock at hold, wrote…………… continues on Bloomberg

LG Optimus LTE P936 appears headed for new markets
News from Android Community:

The Optimus LTE is LG’s flagship phone, at least until the Optimus 4X HD arrives. That being the case, it’s strange that it’s only available in four countries: LG’s home turf South Korea, neighbor Japan, plus Canada and the United States (as the Nitro HD and Spectrum on AT&T and Verizon, respectively). GSM Dome got their hands on a familiar looking model, the Optimus LTE P936, that appears to be identical to the international version except for branding. The new model is obviously headed somewhere, though there’s no indication of where that might be.

The specifications of the P936 seem to match its less mysterious counterparts: 4.5-inch 720p IPS screen, 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera, et cetera. Other details like storage space aren’t mentioned, but are probably the same as the Optimus LTE models we’ve already seen at 4GB plus whatever you want to add with MicroSD. The Quadrant benchmarks are right in line with our own tests on the Nitro HD and

LG targets sales of 80M handsets, 35M smartphones for 2012

LG targets sales of 80M handsets, 35M smartphones for 2012
News from FierceWireless:

LG Electronics expects to sell 80 million handsets, 35 million smartphones and 8 million LTE smartphones in 2012, according to a senior LG executive. The overall handset sales would represent a drop from LG’s mark in 2011, but the company expects to shift its focus toward higher-end, more profitable smartphones this year.

In an interview with Korea Times, Park Jong-seok, head of the company’s handset division, laid out the sales targets for this year as well as the company’s strategic vision. According to research firm IDC, LG shipped 88.1 million handsets in 2011, down from 116.7 million in all of 2010.

LG has been signaling for months that it intends to shift to LTE smartphones with high-end specs to regain its footing, especially in the higher end of the market. The company’s handset unit turned a profit in the first quarter–its first operating profit in six quarters. “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,” Park said.

LG is banking on some high-end devices to give it momentum in the first half of the year. The company recently introduced the high-end Optimus 4X HD, which sports a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The company also announced the Optimus Vu, a 5-inch device in the “phablet” category to compete…………… continues on FierceWireless

LG is all set to launch a new mobile phone that has capacity for not two, but three SIM cards. As reported by GSM Arena, the new phone, called the A290, will be a triple SIM one and will have a 2.2-inch display with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels, along with a 1.3 megapixel camera with flashlight. As part of the specs, it will also have a 1500 mAh battery and has fairly thin dimensions of 113.5 x 51 x 12.95mm. The A290 is going to launch in Russia, this February and details about a worldwide release are unknown still. It will be priced at about €75, which turns out to be approximately Rs.4,866, which in our personal opinion is a tad more expensive than the current phones in the market.

Debuting in South Korea last October, the phone grabbed sales of 600,000 units in its native country during the first three months.

LG swings to a loss as TV, phone sales slump
News from CNET:

The Thrill 4G is among the latest wave of smartphones to come out of LG.

(Credit: Roger Cheng/CNET)

LG Electronics swung to a loss in the third quarter as its television and handset businesses suffered a sharp decline in sales.

LG reported a third-quarter loss of 414 billion Korean won ($ 366 million), compared with a year-earlier loss of 8 billion Korean won. Revenue fell 4 percent to 13.4 trillion Korean won ($ 11.8 billion).

The chief culprits came from the handset and television business. LG’s handset business saw declining sales in both its basic phone business, which it has been purposely ratcheting down, as well as its more profitable smartphone business. Unlike other handset manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics or HTC, the company has yet to truly crack the market with a breakout hit smartphone using
