According to a report from Strategy Analytics which covers the first quarter of 2015, Samsung has yet again claimed the top smartphone OEM spot this year. Apple overtook Samsung late last year with the launch of devices like the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus, but the Korean manufacturer will be glad that the run didn’t last long.
It is said that Samsung shipped 83.2 million in Q1 2015, up from 74.5 million in Q4 2014, so it has certainly seen an increase this quarter. Interestingly, these figures don’t include the sales of the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge which were made available earlier this month. So we can only imagine what the figures would be like during the end of Q2 2015.
Apple managed to sell 61.2 million smartphones in the first quarter of the year, which is an impressive feat considering that they only have a bunch of smartphones on offer. Lenovo-Motorola were at third place and by quite some distance too with only 18.8 million units shipped in the period. Overall, it seems like Samsung’s sales are on the rise again which is very good news for the company.
