One of LG’s facilities is said to be able to produce up to 39.6 million phones every year. But it won’t be making that many this year. It won’t even be making as many V20 smartphones it might have been expecting — perhaps that’s the reason why the company has been low-key about it.

One possible reason why? Its competitor, Samsung.

LG brought the media into its facilities in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province to show off how it builds and tests its phones. The V20 was put through a 60,000-point test, for example, to achieve its MIL-STD 810G rating from the US Department of Defense. Those points include dropping the phone onto steel bars and dropping steel bars onto the phone. Quality assurance measures are conducted for touchscreen sensitivity and frequency pickup.

Assembly lines typically run at 80 percent capacity or about 4,000 smartphones daily.

2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 units were shipped in the two weeks it was out before being recalled by Samsung for issues regarding exploding batteries.
