Did you know that Samsung launched more than 100 Android smartphone models until now?

Like it or not, Samsung is the world’s largest Android smartphone vendor. It wasn’t the first company to release an Android handset, though. That was HTC - back in 2008 - with the T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream.

Samsung’s first commercial Android device was launched a bit later, in June 2009. Simply called Samsung Galaxy (model number i7500), the handset didn’t manage to impress. It offered a 3.2-inch HVGA display, Android 1.5 Cupcake, 128MB of RAM, and a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A processor. Although unimpressive, this original Galaxy, pictured above, was the start of an epic journey for Samsung. 

Epic is a good word to describe the journey, because we just realized that the South Korean company released over 100 Android smartphones around the world since 2009 (not including slightly different variations of the same model). We counted 114 Samsung Android handsets - though results may vary, depending on what you consider to be a variation of the same phone

Of course, it’s not just the sheer number of products that helped Samsung rule the global smartphone market. The company had - and continues to have - a lot of high-end hot sellers, starting with the Galaxy S i9000 that was introduced in the first half of 2010, and finishing with the new Galaxy S5 (which already broke Samsung’s previous record when it comes to shipments). 

If you have the patience, you can check out - and even count - all the Android smartphones launched by Samsung until now here.

Dont forget, Samsung also has a huge demand for Lower, mid range device as well as high end. Competition is even higher on Lower, mid range market

Exactly. Compare that to Motorola and there is a reason why Samsung is king in Android land. Its not all because of the Galaxy series.

I thought there were 1000+, this doesn't include the Mini, Neo, Active, Zoom, Plus, Duo, Pro, WiFi, 7.0, 8.0, 8.4, 10.1, 12.2, spin offs right??

When you do the math Samsung sure make alot of the same or similar phones. Not hating why change something when its good right (or iconic).

They have vast resources. Main reason why I buy their products. Same reason why I buy only Nokia when Nokia was the top brand. I can't stand weak brands.

So many N00Bs bashing on Samsung. What they don't realize is that this creates a huge advantage for Samsung, more choices ofc...For people blindly just name the Active Neo Slim etc. series...it's not even targeting you. It's for people who just want the right smartphone. And Samsung has got it. God these haters and troll are annoying...

nah it's just funny how apple is in second place and they've only released 9 phones since 2007

Imagine if Apple did what Samsung does....they would be alone in 1st place by a huge margin. Also...I would gladly buy a Toyota, Honda, or Nissan over an exotic car if money was no problem.

Wrong logic. Samsung has plenty of Android competition. Apple is the only iOS company and has no iOS competition. So people that want iOS, have only one choice. But people that want Android, have 15+ companies to choose from

althought that is a good point samsung doesn't really have much of a compeition when the android runner is somewhere around 2%

Samsung throws things to the wall to see what sticks so not surprised at all.

Samsung would have loved to sell their flagship to every Samsung owner. Fact is the world does not have uniform affordability. Therefore they customize the features set to different price point to be released into different regions. MUCH better than trying to sell iPhone 4 8GB in 2014 for US $399 to India. Learn that they have stop that practice due to low demand.
