Samsung sold more Galaxy S IIIs than Galaxy S4s in the Middle East
Market research company IDC last week released some figures that puts Samsung’s smartphones ahead of the competition in the Middle East region. According to the report, Samsung smartphones contributed to almost 50 percent of the smartphone sales in the Middle East in the second quarter. The most startling fact of the report is that the Galaxy S III sold more in the same quarter compared to Samsung’s current flagship – Galaxy S4 and even Apple’s iPhone 5.
While Nokia still leads the overall mobile phone market with 45 percent market share, Samsung’s share stood at 18 percent followed by Apple at 11 percent.
