Samsung Becomes No 1 in SmartPhone Beats Apple

Samsung took its lead over Apple in smartphones, Due to Arrival of  new Galaxy phones before Apple updated its iPhone.


Samsung's Galaxy S III phone got good reviews right from the release. In US, the phones work with the faster 4G network. The Galaxy's screen is much larger than the iPhone's, while the Samsung phone is lighter and thinner.  An iPhone with 4G capabilities isn't expected until this fall. IPhone 4S, came out in October, as the sales dropped several months after its release. 

 According to IDC, Samsung Electronics shipped 50.2 million smartphones worldwide and had a market share of 33 per cent, up from 17 per cent a year ago. Apple fell down a bit to 17 per cent, from 19 per cent a year ago. It sold 26 million iPhones in the April-June.

Having the Galaxy S III before the new iPhone, it also benefited from its strategy of developing several devices for a range of consumers. On the other-hand, Apple targets only the high-end market with its iPhone. IDC’s report after Samsung Galaxy sales was that it was the highest sale record as it had a quarterly profit. These sales made all other consumer electronic businesses such as television and PC’s.

Reports of the analyst speaks that Samsung will achieve a new high profit record by the third quarter, but they also may slow down as the Apple’s new iPhone shows out.The shipping of the phone manufacturers is 154 million smartphones by second quarter, 42 per cent increase from 108 million a year. Including mobile phones, vendors shipped 406 million units, up from 402 million a year earlier. 

Samsung and Apple combined claimed nearly half of the smartphone market. Nokia is third with a 6.6 per cent market share, down from more than 15 per cent a year ago. HTC is fourth with 5.7 per cent of the market, down from nearly 11 per cent. Chinese phone ZTE has reached in the fifth spot for the first time, with a 5.2 per cent market share, up from 1.8 per cent a year earlier. Its lower-cost, entry-level smartphones have been popular in China and Latin America.
