Dual-core phones expected to make up 15% of smartphones in 2011, rising to 45% in 2015
Metrics company Strategy Analytics issued a new report on Thursday that predicts a 15% penetration of the smartphone market worldwide by handsets powered by dual-core processors. According to the report, Samsung, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, ST-Ericsson, Texas Instruments, Marvell, Renesas and Broadcom are well-positioned to benefit from the start of this new multi-core era.

Stuart Robinson, Strategy Analytics' Director of Handset Components Technology Service says,
"We estimate Samsung will lead the smartphone multi-core applications processor market in 2011, followed by Qualcomm, NVIDIA, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments." Of these firms,
Qualcomm and ST-Ericsson are expected to be the only two m
anufacturers to produce multi-core processors with integrated baseboards. Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst for Strategy Analytics said, "The baseband-integrated multi-core applications processors will account for about one-third of total smartphone multi-core applications processor shipments in 2011, with potential for higher share in the future. By contrast, the market for single-core apps processors is now dominated by baseband-integrated products.”

Overall, the firm expects multi-core processors as a group to rise from the expected 15% share of the smartphone market in 2011, to as high as 45% by 2015.

I won't put so much faith in Samsung. With all the delay it has been showing to update their Android OSes, many of their current customers (including me) will think twice before buying another Samsung device. There's already some talk on Android 2.4 while many of the owners of Galaxy S series are still stuck to 2.1, this is ridiculous. They still stand a chance, though, depending on how superior will be their hardware and how low will be their prices.
