#Samsung and #Apple have always been neck and neck in terms of sales, although the latter has always been the market leader in terms of overall revenues and income. Samsung has now posted its Q3 2015 financial earnings, with device sales surpassing Apple’s. This is not a surprise given that Apple was yet to release the new iPhones for most part of the third quarter, so a lot of Apple fans were waiting for the release of the two devices.
At about the same time, Samsung released two new flagship phones in the form of the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. It is interesting to note that Samsung’s smartphone sales are the highest since Q1 2014, so the release of multiple midrange and budget handsets might have impacted the company’s sales figures.
While Samsung is leading in terms of smartphone sales, it’s still behind in terms of smartwatch sales with the Apple Watch leading the pack. It will be interesting to see how the Q4 2015 figures will read, given that the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus will be well established in the market by then.
