LG G3 Is a Hit in South Korea, Sells 100,000 Units Five Days After Launch

 The LG G3 proved to be a hit among consumers in Korea.

The LG G3 was announced a week ago, but it has already broken sales records in its home country.

According to The Korea IT Times, the cumulative sales of the G3 hit the 100,000 milestone in just five days after its launch on May 28. This is the fastest selling phone ever in LG's history. Its predecessor, the G2, had a domestic per-day sales of less than 10,000 units which means a total sales of about 50,000 units in five days.

The Korea IT Times attributed the bump in sales to LG's aggressive marketing efforts. With its mobile business reaping profits for two straight years, LG is now in a better position to carry out more marketing initiatives. 

In Singapore, pre-order for LG G3 will start next week, June 14 to 21. Customers who pre-order will receive a free Quick Circle case and the Wireless Charger (WCD-100). The G3 will be available from June 28 and comes in two models: 16GB internal storage with 2GB RAM at $868 (~PhP 30,245) and 32GB internal storage with 3GB RAM at $928 (~PhP 32,336)

The LG G3 will be introduced in the Philippines soon.
