LG have some grand plans for 2013, and by grand, we mean really grand - the South Korean company are expecting to have a ten-fold increase in sales according to The Korea Times.




The Korea Times' report also says that LG are looking to sell roughly 75 million handsets this year, with 45 million of those being smartphones. LG also talks about jumping into the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon, with a senior executive from one of LG's partners telling The Korea Times:


We will release quite a number of new Optimus devices this year, and LG also has some new smartphones in the works that will run Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.


The executive adds that this year "won't be as bullish for LG as last year" and that the Nexus 4 and Optimus G have helped the South Korean company make great impressions with major carriers. These two smartphones have shown not only the carriers, but consumers that LG are more than capable of releasing some of the best built, and outright best smartphones on the market right now.
