UBS: Samsung to sell over 60 million smartphones in the fourth quarter
30 million Galaxy S IIIs have been sold since its launch last May. While the Samsung Galaxy S III continues to rack up sales, there is talk that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be introduced at CES 2013 with a 5 inch display offering a 1080p resolution, which works out to a fantastic 441ppi pixel density. That matches the figures of the display on the just released HTC DROID DNA. As for the Samsung GALAXY Note III, the early water cooler talk is about a 5.8 inch screen with a pixel density in the 330ppi area.
The 61.5 million smartphones that UBS expects Sammy to sell from October through December include a range of low priced models, like the Samsung Galaxy Pocket, to high-end devices like the Samsung GALAXY Note II. There are some non-Android phones that are included, like a few bada flavored devices and the Windows Phone 8 Samsung ATIV S, but those are not expected to add too much to the total.
Samsung is currently the global leader in smartphone production, having surpassed Apple in the first quarter of this year when it sold 42.2 million units versus 35.1 million sold by the Cupertino based tech firm.
