Seoul-based LG has just announced that it has sold “an Optimus L Series device every second over the past two months,” resulting in over 15 million total units sold.
“The success of the Optimus L Series is testament to our belief all along that there is indeed a market for well-balanced smartphones that represent individuals’ unique tastes,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new Optimus L Series II expands upon the design philosophy of the original series so we’re quite confident that we’ll have another hit on our hands.”
Of course, LG’s Optimus smartphone line has a long way to go before it catches up with Samsung and its Galaxy line, but it’s nonetheless an impressive milestone.
The Optimus L Series II phones — consisting of the Optimus L3 II, Optimus L5 II and Optimus L7 II — will feature a “comfortable contour with laser-etched details in a slim unibody design” and will replace the Series I devices starting at the end of this month — LG intends to unveil the Optimus L Series II phones at Mobile World Congress 2013 with an upgraded design and improved features.
