Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source, told today that the smartphone market is now a new leader. And now it's not at all Nokia, but Samsung, which overtook the Finnish company in terms of sales in the third quarter of this year.
The publication does not have these exact data, but reports that the South Korean company managed to sell from 20 to 30 million smartphones. Of course, it is difficult to call the data any accurate. However, even if the lower figure is correct, it still Samsung significantly outperformed the competition. So, Apple managed to sell a little more than 17 million devices. As for the former market leader Nokia, the Finnish company reached only 16.8 million, moving to third place.
At the heart of success Samsung lies the success of the operating system Android. The company's own operating system is not yet very popular.
Samsung has not yet commented on the report of his own success. However, even if it does not correspond to the truth, it will not be long to wait for the company to take the first place.
