LG Electronics saw its mobile phone business fall back in the red in the second quarter, after a small profit in Q1. With weak sales in the premium smartphone market and an increase in raw material costs, the mobile business had a quarterly operating loss of KRW 132.4 billion (USD 117.3 million). After a positive operating margin of 0.1 percent in Q1, LG Mobile was back at a negative 4.9 percent in Q2, similar to the minus 4.1 percent a year ago.
