A brief history of LG cell phones

Lucky Gold Star is the full form of the very popular LG brand. LG started as a group of enterprises from South Korea, in the year 1947 with the founding of the first Korean chemical company called the Lucky Chemical Industry.

Fast forward a few years to the year 1958 and the Lucky Chemical Industry expanded into the production of home appliances. It also changed its name to Goldstar Electronics Corporation in an attempt to keep up with the times.

In the present day, the Lucky Goldstar Company has become one of the top contenders of industrial might in Korea along with other big names like Hyundai, Samsung, and Daewoo. The Goldstar Electronics Corporation is divided into four business divisions, called:

Mobile Communication that oversees the production of mobile phone and tablet computers.

Digital Appliances like ACs and refrigerators

Digital display appliances like LCD monitors, CRT, and other projectors.

Digital Media in the form of DVD recorder, DVD player, home theatre systems and car audio.

LG did not get into the production of cell phones until the year 2000. Despite having unique features, the LG handsets did not do too well in the market and were unable to garner enough interest or even a good reply. Until around that time, LG was primarily known for its electronic goods and not its cellular handsets.

It was in the year 2002 that the LG mobile company finally announced the debut of its very first WCDMA technology that helped the company dip its toes into the mobile phone industry. Production of various models featuring GSM, WCDMA cell phones, and CDMA technology was started, and these models were strategically launched into the market.

These helped the manufacturer gain enormous success when the models were released under the famous Black Label Series that featured the concept of the exposure of the form factor. It had four models that were launched and given exciting names like the Chocolate edition in the year 2006, Shine edition in the year 2007, Secret edition in the year 2008 and the New Chocolate edition in the year 2009.

The Optimus series is the most recent Android phones developed by LG.
