LG has seen revenues and operating profits in the last quarter of 2020 (4Q2020) higher than for any preceding final quarter in the OEM's history. Similarly, it has broken its operating-profit record for the whole of 2020. It made a total of ~US$57.9 billion in 2020, which kept its revenues above the $55 billion mark for four years running.

LG is often perceived to be struggling as a corporation, possibly due to the level of success seen by its erstwhile G series of flagship phones worldwide, not to mention the fact that its Display division had not posted a profit for nearly 2 years up until 3Q2020. Nevertheless, it has announced revenues adding up to 63.3 trillion Korean won (KRW, or ~US$57.9 billion) for the whole of 2020.

The OEM also now projects that it will have full-year operating profits of 3.2 trillion KRW, or about $2.9 billion, which is a record high for the company and also an increase of 31% year-on-year (YoY). It also now claims to have 4Q2020 operating profits of 647 billion KRW (~$592 million), a growth of 536% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ).

This is also a 4Q record for the company, as are its newly-reported fourth-quarter revenues (18.8 trillion KRW, or ~$17.2 billion). Then again, it has also noted that these are preliminary figures, released now for the benefit of its investors, ahead of its 2020 and 4Q2020 financial reports in full.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
