Prior to this, LG, which was still producing mobile phones, and another local giant Samsung had signed an agreement to each other promised to only sell products of their respective brands in its stores to avoid competition with small distributors. Under this premise, LG’s cooperation plan with Apple is said to have encountered resistance from a mobile phone dealer organization in the preparatory stage. Later, as LG officially ended its global mobile phone business, they reached a new agreement with distributors, so that there would no longer be any obstacles for LG stores to sell other products.
