Samsung sells more LTE phones than Apple in Q2 2014


Last updated: August 25th, 2014 at 16:33 UTC+02:00

There were some reports that the Galaxy S5 didn’t live up to Samsung’s expectations in terms of sales but according to a report from Strategy Analytics, Samsung was able to sell more LTE phones than Apple, thanks to the Galaxy S5. According to this report, Samsung sold over 28.6 million LTE equipped smartphones, overtaking Apple as the world’s largest LTE smartphone vendor. During Q1 2014, Apple was the leading LTE smartphone vendor with a market share of 40.5 percent which fell to just 31.9 percent last quarter, though this might be due to iPhone consumers holding off their purchases till the launch of the iPhone 6, which is expected to feature a larger 4.7-inch screen and a new product design.

Unlike Apple which sells only high-end smartphones, Samsung has a wide range of smartphones and tablets with 4G connectivity including the Galaxy Core Lite which is priced as low as $300. Most of these 4G LTE equipped devices from Samsung are usually limited to US, European and Korean markets but they have recently started expanding their availability to other countries such as India and China. Samsung had recently announced the Galaxy S5 4G for India in direct competition with the iPhone 5S, though, the device is still unavailable for purchase. Samsung is also expected to unveil 4G equipped Galaxy Note 4 during its Unpacked event at IFA 2014 in Berlin.
