According to multiple reports, LG Electronics has reclaimed their position in America as the nation’s number 2 handset manufacturer. LG had previously been ranked number 3, which they dropped to following the 2011 launch of Apple’s iPhone 4S.
Yonhap News reports that, “According to Hong Kong-based Counterpoint Research, mobile phones by LG Electronics recorded a share of 13 percent in December in the United States, beating Apple Inc. with 12 percent. The No. 1 player was retained by Samsung Electronics Co. with 33 percent.”
If this news proves to be true, it’s quite an accomplishment for LG. I’m not sure if and how much the latest Nexus device played into this, but it should only get better as demands are met. Next up … Samsung!
So what do you think? Are you a proud LG owner? Let us know!
