LG Electronics Inc., which has been ramping up efforts to regain a presence in the mobile phone industry, has sold more than 1 million Optimus Vu phones locally, the company said Monday.
The Optimus Vu series, which includes the Optimus Vu and the Optimus Vu 2 phones, features a 4:3 display that was designed to enhance readability of Web pages and e-books.
LG Electronics locally released the Optimus Vu in March and Optimus Vu 2 in September.
The handset maker has rolled out the Optimus VU in Asia, Europe and the U.S. in third-generation and long-term evolution versions.
It has not yet launched the Optimus Vu 2 globally.
“It’s meaningful that the wider screen design appealed to consumers. We are mulling the Optimus Vu 2 global launch after reviewing Optimus Vu sales,” said an LG official. (Yonhap News)
