Phablet

According to a new survey conducted by Juniper Research, phablets have been widely successful in the market so far with over 20 million units sold in 2013. We saw quite a few phablets launching last year, including the likes of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The research further claims that this figure will reach 120 million by 2018, suggesting a massive increase in production and demand for phablets. Juniper’s research took devices with a display size of over 5.6 inches into consideration, which covers almost every phablet out there.

Samsung was brave enough to launch one of the first phablets in 2011, which turned out to be a masterstroke by the company. So it’s no surprise that the Galaxy Note is one of the highest selling phablets in the world today, despite the presence of several other phablets in the market. However, things could be slightly different in 2014 where we expect a lot more phablets to be announced, so the competition is certainly going to get tougher.
