The Kommersant publication, citing the GS Group analytical company, reported that one of the world's largest and oldest smartphone manufacturers, the Korean company LG, could leave the Russian market. According to experts, the last time the brand occupied a prominent place in the domestic market in 2013. Since then, smartphone brand sales have been steadily declining.
They began to fall especially rapidly in 2017 – and the further, the worse. So, in the first half of 2018, LG sold about 80,000 smartphones in Russia, which is almost 5 times less than in the same period in 2017. But what is this! According to retailers, in the first half of 2019, Russians purchased altogether 5,000 gadgets from LG.
The upcoming departure of the brand is also indicated by the fact that now Korean smartphones are practically not represented in large retail chains, and on the company's official website there is only one model available for ordering in two versions – LG G7 Fit and G7 ThinQ. Moreover, both smartphones are offered with significant skids – 7,000 and 11,000 rubles, respectively – which hardly indicates their popularity with the public.
From our editorial staff, we can add the following: news on smartphones and other gadgets from LG always gets tens or even hundreds of times less views than notes on Xiaomi or Samsung smartphones.
