In April, LG Electronics – the third largest phone manufacturer in the US – announced it will close its smartphone business globally to focus on its other offerings.
Well, it turns out that LG could still sell smartphones, not just their own.
As reported Business in Korea, via BGR, LG is in talks with Apple to resell iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches at more than 400 LG Best Shops in South Korea. That’s right, the former Android smartphone maker has chosen Apple products instead of Android as their favorite laptop after their own devices.
Report also mentions that LG and Apple are negotiating the establishment of designated Apple corners in stores, either by Apple employees or LG Best Shop staff.
One request they it has not yet been agreed whether Apple has required its laptops to be displayed at points of sale, Business in Korea. Computers are one category that LG doesn’t want Apple to claim because the South Korean technical brand wants their Gram laptops as separate computers.
In South Korea Android means the most popular mobile operating system in the country, probably due to the preference for Samsung models. LG’s reluctant plans to serve a slice of apple pie could increase its presence as a market challenger.
Spokesman LG Electronics said Business in Korea that “nothing has been decided yet” and that the brand is “exploring all possibilities”.
