Though the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro is still not available outside Korea, LG is already claiming a sales record. The latest “phablet” notched 10,000 orders at launch, leading to half a million sold just 40 days after its launch and ahead of its coming April update. It closely follows the Galaxy Note II’s successful formula while packing the brand-new Qualcomm 600 quad-core CPU. LG’s pushed the phone with several promotions, including letting potential customers try one for 30 days to see how they live with its size. An LG executive quoted in the PR sees this increased communication continuing to push sales at home and abroad.
