Reuters: A new Reuters poll finds that market analysts believe Samsung has sold more smartphones this quarter than Apple has. They predict that Samsung has sold 50 million smartphones, including the popular Galaxy S III model, while Apple has sold about 30.5 million iPhones. “Samsung is expected to be the smartphone hero in the second quarter,” said IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo. “We are also expecting to see the biggest smartphone volumes ever shipped from one single vendor in one quarter, driven by strong demand of the Galaxy portfolio, particularly the Galaxy S II and S III.”
The poll also found that Chinese smartphone vendors ZTE and Huawei are growing their market share.
