Samsung sets a goal to sell 500 million devices in 2013
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.
