LG missing out on market for Lollipop phones

LG will not be selling its much sought-after Lollipop phones in the UK, despite signs of strong consumer demand for the youth-orientated mobile phones.

The Lollipop range of handsets stands out the pixellated animations that appear on their exterior and for their bright, colourful looks.

Since details of the Lollipop mobiles emerged online in March, Top 10 Mobile Phones has been inundated with enquiries from UK consumers.

However, a spokesperson for LG has now confirmed that there are currently “no plans” to grant the handsets a UK release and that they will remain exclusive to South Korea.

Aimed at consumers aged between 17 and 23, the Lollipop range currently comprises three handsets, namely the SV800, KH8000 and the LH8000.

All three mobile phones feature a clamshell form factor, HSDPA support for fast downloads and an impressively large 2.8-inch screen.

LG mobile phones confirmed for a UK release this year include the successor to the LG Viewty KU990, the LG Viewty Smart, and an as-yet-unnamed 12 megapixel cameraphone.
