Last time we heard about it, Samsung’s global mobile market share was 19.2% (in the second quarter of 2009).
By the end of the year, the company’s mobile market share is expected to top 20%, for the first time in its history.
According to Strategy Analytics, Samsung will sell 117.8 million phones in the second half of 2009, accounting for about 20.3% of the market – mainly at the expense of Nokia, which should see its market share slightly declining (the Finns are already losing sales to Samsung and LG).

Samsung’s continuous growth is sustained by both high-end and mid-end phones: new models like Samsung S5600 and S5230 (for Europe), or Samsung Impression (for the US), are quite popular among customers.
