Samsung has now officially been confirmed as top cell phone supplier of 2012. Three research companies have identical results in this matter. According to the strategy analytics, Samsung ended on shipping 213 million cell phones in 2012, with an increase of 21.6 percent in the handset sales and a whopping 213.8 percent increase in the Smartphone sells. In the last quarter of 2012, Samsung shipped 63 million phones; Samsung even beat the previous best record of Nokia with 100 million sales in a year.
According ABI research company, Samsung shipped over 60 million phones in 2012 and IDC reports 67 million. But, according to both of them Samsung ended on top of the shipped. Lastly, the research companies have also named top 3 cellular brand of this year but there is slight conflict in it. According to strategy analytics: Samsung, Apple and Nokia were the top 3 brands, whereas according to the other firms: Samsung, Apple and Huawei were the top three.
