Samsung Sold Close To 500 Handsets Per Minute In Q4 2012

Samsung is continuing its climb and journey for market domination as new information reveals the South Korean phone-maker might have sold as much as 500 handsets every minute in the last quarter of 2012. For the same period its quarterly profit appears to be likely around $8.1 billion, according to a Reuters report.

The Samsung Galaxy S III, followed by the Galaxy Note II, had a crucial role for the company in achieving this goal. The strong portfolio of products is also crucial for Samsung. While competitors like Apple have released only one model, HTC 18 models, Nokia 9, and LG 24,  Samsung has unleashed a whopping 37 phones and variants.

However, the winning streak which has been going on for five consecutive quarters might come to a halt in Q1 2013, notes Reuters, because of “weak seasonal demand”.

Nonetheless, the Galaxy S IV is expected to be an even bigger blockbuster than its predecessor — every Galaxy S model outperformed the previous one — but Samsung is expected to launch the phone in sometime in Q2.
