SEOUL, Jan. 14 (Korea Bizwire) – South Korea’s No. 3 mobile carrier LG Uplus Corp. said Thursday its sales of the Huawei Y6 smartphone reached 20,000 units this week, reflecting the country’s rising demand for budget handsets.
The better-than-expected sales came around a month after the mobile carrier released the smartphone made by China-based Huawei Technologies Co., which comes with a price tag of 154,000 won (US$127).
LG Uplus said its survey showed that most of its clients chose the Y6 smartphone for its price, while others cheered its performance.
The smartphone was especially popular among teenagers and those in their 40s and 50s, the company said.
The 5-inch smartphone comes with a 2,200 mAh removable battery along with 2-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras. It runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 and comes in two colors — black and white.’
