Samsung Beats Its 2010 Record, Sells 300 Million Phones In 2011By cheatmaster 12:15 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 Comments
Samsung execs can pop the champagne early - in 2011, they srecent more phones than they've srecent ever before, a cool 300 million units. That's up from 280 million in 2010, which itself was a gigantic improvement over 2009.
The South Korean company is currently the second largest phone maker by volume (counting smartphones and feature phones), trailing Nokia.
Samsung's flagship Android phone, the Galaxy S II contributed a significant chunk of the sales - 10 million units (at least, that number was announced in late September). That makes it a record seller for Samsung, considering it first hit the shelves in April.
Samsung's president and head of the Mobile communications business, JK Shin, says "We see forward to extending this success going into 2012".
