Western markets might not get the LG G3 for another month or so, but the phone is already on sale in LG's home market of South Korea, where apparently it's selling pretty well. Korean outlet ETNews reports that the phone is shifting 25,000 to 30,000 units daily in the country, and that sales are 1.5 to 2 times that of last year's G2. The publication points out it's also ahead of the 7,000 to 8,000 managed by the Galaxy S5, though that phone's Korean launch was disrupted by an unauthorized early release on certain carriers, as operators looked to sidestep government-imposed sales bans.
Nevertheless, it puts LG well on its way towards achieving its target of 10 million shipments for its new flagship. The G3 went on sale on all three Korean carriers last Wednesday, May 28; a European and U.S. launch is expected in early July.
