Truckload of LG G2 smartphones goes missing in U.S.
A huge truckload of LG’s new G2 smartphones has gone missing in the U.S., prompting a police investigation. On Sunday the truck carrying 22,500 of the latest smartphones went missing at a stopover in the state of Kentucky on Oct. 24 while en route to mobile carrier Sprint. The shipment worth an estimated W15.75 billion is insured against theft or damage and LG will probably not lose any money. LG unveiled the G smartphone at an event in New York in August and started selling them in the U.S. last month.
LG accounts for a nine-percent share of the U.S. smartphone market as of the second quarter of this year.LG does not fear any loss of classified technology, since the G2 is already on sale.
