LG: We’re 100% committed to the smartphone business

LG - We're 100% committed to the smartphone business

Few days ago, Korea’s ET News alleged that LG has started shifting some resources away from its smartphone business. That, apparently, is not the case with LG promptly reacting, calling that report “completely false.” Here’s what they said in a statement to Mobile World Live:

We are more committed than ever to making the LG brand a major player in the mobile space and we think our products this year speak for themselves.

It is kinda natural that LG doesn’t want to leave the smartphone business now that it finally managed to establish itself as a serious contender in the “smartphone wars.” The Korean company made the last year’s Nexus 4 and this year’s Nexus 5, the fact that propelled it to the higher echelons of the market. In addition, both the LG Optimus G Pro phablet and LG G2 smartphone were among the most-wanted devices at the time of their launches. So it doesn’t make much sense to shift the strategy now when they’ve “cracked the code”… or so we think. What do you say?

    yeah it makes sense for LG to stay in the game now that it mastered it. :)
