Little by little we are seeing how the smartphones presented during the MWC are put on sale so that the users can enjoy the last thing that the manufacturers offer us. For some of these terminals the first few days of sale are a test of fire in order to know if they will be a sales success or not.
One of them is the LG G6, the flagship of the Korean manufacturer that brings some differentiating features, such as its screen format 18: 9 or HDR10 display. This weekend the LG flagship in Korea began to be sold, and the numbers invite optimism with more than 30,000 units sold.
According to The Korean Herald, more than 30,000 LG G6s were sold this weekend, with a total of 82,000 pre-orders since March 2, when this possibility was enabled. These figures show that the Korean manufacturer has made a smart move by overtaking its rival in his home country.
According to KB Securities analyst Kim Dong-won, only during the first day 20,000 devices were sent to their new owners among those who had booked, which is a higher figure than any of their predecessors . At the moment, seeing these figures belonging to a weekend, it seems that LG is in luck.
However, it is difficult to predict if this success is fleeting while leaving the Galaxy S8 or will be something more durable. Something that can weigh the good sales of the LG G6 is the decision to eliminate some characteristic according to the market to which the terminal is directed, we will see if the public recriminates this with low sales or not.
