Smartphones major factor in Samsung's profits
Smartphone giants Samsung boast record profits in 2011. Read on to find out more.
2011 has been a fantastic year for the majority of smartphone manufacturers, but it seems Samsung have been one of the biggest winners in the past year.
The South Korean company has racked up a total profit of £2.9 billion for the last quarter of 2011.
Figures from Strategy Analytics suggest that Samsung’s range of Galaxy phones have been a major factor in the profits, with the Galaxy SII and Galaxy Note being two of the more popular devices of last year.
Strategy Analytics report estimates that a staggering 36.5 million Samsung handsets were sold in the last quarter of 2011, leaving them just behind Apple’s figure of 37.04 million handsets, and
well in front of third-place Nokia’s 19.6 million handset.
