Samsung sets a goal to sell 500 million devices in 2013
Samsung has set a high goal for 2013 - its goal is to ship a whopping 500 million devices, a huge increase over the nearly 420 million it shipped in the past 2012. The information comes courtesy of Taiwanese DigiTimes’ supply chain sources.

Samsung has stopped announcing exact figures for its quarterly shipments and sales of devices and that makes it harder to estimate the company’s exact sales data. However the Korean company uses a number of panel suppliers for its low and mid-range devices and data seems to leak from there. One of the screen panel suppliers, Chinese BOE, is estimated to ship 10 million panels a month to Samsung.

In more affordable devices, Samsung is using traditional LCD displays, while for higher end devices the company manufactures its own AMOLED screens. It also gets panels for high-end smartphones from Sharp and Japan Display.
