Sales of the LG V10 have been soft in South Korea

by John_A


The LG V10 is the company’s flagship device to carry it through the end of 2015, offering a more premium experience than the G4 that launched earlier in the year. There’s a bit of uniqueness to the V10, too, with its secondary display offering quick access to apps. But for all that it can be praised about, the V10 is not off to a great start in LG’s home country of South Korea. Consumers have not been very receptive to handset even after the LG lowered its price from $689 to $615 and analysts are projecting that the V10’s poor performance in South Korea will is not going to change anytime soon.

Market research firm ATLAS Research & Consulting found that the V10 was not included in the top ten of smartphone sales in South Korea from October 8-14. Devices from Samsung, like the Galaxy Note 5 and a multitude of low-end hardware, and Apple’s iPhone are leading in the country, especially after the latter initiated a price drop of its own. And LG certainly won’t be helped by the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus’ arrival in South Korea this month.

Here in the United States, consumers are still waiting for Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile to begin selling the V10.
