Everyone has been talking about Apple’s growth, but it looks like Samsung is ready to take over Apple’s role as analysts expect it to weather seasonally low demand and still deliver record smartphone sales in Q1 2013.
Analysts from Counterpoint Research estimate that Samsung sold about 25 million smartphones each month of 2013 for a total of over 70 million in Q1. Samsung only increased its dominant position in smartphones growing market share from 32% in Q4 2012 to 35% in Q1 2013.
Apple and LG are also expected to increase their market shares in the first quarter. It is projected that Apple will reach 21% market share while LG will grow to 4.3% from 4%. It’s a great quarter for Samsung, but we would like to see where everyone is next time this year.
