LG wants life to be good throughout 2013, as the company plans to sell 40 million smartphones this year. The South Korean company wants to depart from the usual entry-level handsets and shift into higher gears - this comes from the Head of LG's Mobile Communications Division, Park Jong Seok.
LG shipped 26.3 million smartphones last year, so if they want to meet their 40 million smartphone goal they'll need to nearly double their efforts this year. From what MWC 2013 has shown so far, this might not be as hard as you think. LG have some great devices coming out, and I think we're going to see them meet their 2013 goals.
