Optimus Vu sales pass 1M as LG narrows smartphone gap

LG Electronics, which has been ramping up efforts to regain its presence in the mobile phone industry, has sold more than 1 million Optimus Vu phones in Korea, the company said yesterday.

The series, which includes the Optimus Vu and the Optimus Vu 2 phones, features a 4:3 display that was designed to enhance the readability of Web pages and e-books.

LG Electronics released the Optimus Vu in March and the Optimus Vu 2 in September, both in Korea.
The handset maker has rolled out the Optimus VU in Asia, Europe and the U.S. in both 3G and faster 4G LTE (long-term evolution) versions. It has not yet launched the Optimus Vu 2 globally.

“It’s significant that the wider screen design appealed to consumers. We are mulling a global launch for the Optimus Vu 2 after reviewing sales of the Optimus Vu,” said an LG staffer.
