This may come as a surprise to many, but to Samsung it’s perhaps what they had planned. According to sources of WSJ, Samsung shipped more smartphones than both Nokia and Apple in the third quarter, making them the number 1 player as far as shipment volume is concerned. The actual numbers are as follows: Samsung at over 20 million smartphones, Apple with 17.1 million iPhones, and Nokia at 16.8 million smartphones. While this has not been confirmed by Samsung, it’ll be interesting to see how this next quarter plays out with all of the big launches and announcement made between Apple and Samsung.
