HTC and Samsung report strong flagship shipments
The smartphone wars are heating up and now we are hearing that Samsung and HTC flagship Android phones are flying off the shelves, leaving the competition in a cloud of dust.
Samsung has managed to ship 10 million Galaxy S4s over the last month or so, making the S4 the fastest selling Samsung phone of all time. It easily trumps the S III, which took 50 days to hit the 10 million milestone, and the S II, which took five months. It is an impressive result to say the least, although Samsung’s arch-nemesis Apple shipped 37.4 million iPhones in the first quarter.
However, HTC is fighting back and the underdog is doing quite well. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Taiwanese outfit has sold around 5 million units of the HTC One. Despite internal turmoil and horrific financial results over the past few quarters, HTC seems to be putting up quite a fight. The HTC One might be the company’s last chance to stay relevant and it appears to be performing admirably.
Apple remains the big unknown at this point. Cupertino is expected to roll out a new iPhone over the next few months, along with a cheaper, plastic version of the iPhone for emerging markets. However, it might not be enough to stop the Android juggernaut.
