Estimates Show Samsung Leading Smartphone Sales Race
Analysts estimate that Samsung has increased its lead over Apple and Nokia during the second quarter due to strong demand of the Galaxy S III.
Although Samsung and Apple have been neck-and-neck for several quarter, analysts expect the Samsung Galaxy S III and other samsung devices to sell around 50 million devices in Q2. Apple is expected to sell 30.5 million iPhones. It is important to note that iPhone sales usually do slow down when the next iPhone is rumored to be released.
IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo believes that "Samsung is expected to be the smartphone hero in the second quarter. We are also expecting to see the biggest smartphone volumes ever shipped from one single vendor in one quarter, driven by strong demand of the Galaxy portfolio, particularly the Galaxy S II and S III."
Samsung is estimated to have sold 15.7 million more phones than Nokia in the second quarter as well.
