Thanks to just a few of LG's smartphones, they've seen a record amount of smartphones shipped in Q1 2013. 10.3 million smartphones were shipped in the three-month period, riding the success of some of their LTE and 3G handsets.
The smartphones that helped LG reach their record high are the Optimus G, Optimus G Pro, Optimus L Series and Nexus 4. LG have said that more extensive availability of newer devices is expected to help smartphone sales and shipments even more going into Q2. The US launch of their flagship Optimus G Pro happens on May 3, and should see the South Korean company have great success in Q2 and beyond.
