Galaxy S3 Crushing Apple’s iPhone In Global Market Sales


The Samsung Galaxy S3’s release has seen the Korean-based company extend the gap against Apple and Nokia in the global smartphone sales market. Thanks to the amazingly popular launch of Samsung’s next generation landmark Galaxy S device the company had huge second quarter sales.

Samsung and Apple have been fighting it out in the smartphone sales war for years, and the battle has even resulted in numerous patent lawsuits being filed throughout the world as the two tech giants look to stumble each other up in different regions.

However, thanks for Samsung’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in May, the company has excelled in the sales department across the globe. According to a survey of 41 analysts Samsung is estimated to have sold 50 million smartphone devices in the second quarter of 2012 compared to  Apple’s 30.5 million sales for its infamous iPhone devices.

Samsung has numerous smartphones out on the market and optimizes the Android operating system for its leading smartphones. However, Apple’s core smartphone sales come through just the iPhone 4S, which was released in 2011, and the iPhone 4, which is a year older on the market.

Nokia had reigned at the top of the pile in global smartphone market sales for a massive 14 years previously, but they are now falling behind fast, and both Samsung and Apple are constantly eating away at consumers choosing Nokia.

The impressive sales of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has sparked rumors that Apple is now looking to bring forward its release date for its next generation smartphone, the iPhone 5. It is now believed the device could be released as early as August, although other analysts have suggested a September or October release date is still more likely on the cards. When the iPhone 5 is released it is predicted Apple will see a huge rise in sales that could match if not beat Samsung’s Galaxy S3 demand.

  1. I bought my SG3 two days ago, and I really regret I did it so late. The device is the best one I ever touched and used.Its quality is excellent, and I still wonder why some people keep telling iPhones are better.For those of you who don’t mind the design, you’ll be happy to hear that in addition to the beastly 1.4GHz quad-core processor, Samsung has bumped up the RAM to a healthy 2GB (versus the 1GB that was previously announced). In addition you get a 5MP rear-facing camera, HSPA+ support and the S Pen/Wacom digitizer.
