Samsung sale figures rise, Galaxy S II & Nexus aid
Although Apple have now brought out the new iPhone 4S and it’s proving a must have for many consumers, it’s fair to say that South Korean rivals Samsung have had a fantastic 2011 and we’ve still got a few weeks to go until the start of 2012.
As well as releasing a new Galaxy Tab slate this year in three varying sizes, we’ve seen an array of mobile phones to land on retailer shelves. The most popular by far is of course the Galaxy S II, and now it seems the new Galaxy Nexus and Note are hot on its heels. With estimated sales figures of the S2 already broken, the company have now according to electronista.com, had to revise their smartphone 2011 sales figures.
During quarter 3, shipments of smartphones had risen up to 19% from year over year with a figure of 71 million phones, with an impressive figure of at least 20 million S2’s being sold compared to just over 17 million iPhones during the same period.
