Samsung to sell more than 50 million smartphones in 2011, mainly Android and Bada-based
Just like HTC, Samsung has big plans for this year when it comes to smartphone sales.
The South Korean company is already a major player in the smartphone market thanks to the Android-based Galaxy S (sold in more than 10 million units around the world as of the end of 2010).
In 2011, Samsung hopes to sell more than 50 million smartphones, betting heavily on mid-range devices. Unsurprisingly, Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung Mobile’s president, recently said that most of these smartphones will run either Android, or Bada (we’ve already heard that the company expects to sell 10 million Bada phones in the first half of the year).
Samsung also makes Windows Phone 7 handsets, but I don’t think it will ship more than a few millions of them before the year’s end. Sure enough, I might be wrong. In any case, I’m quite sure there will be more than 50 million Samsung smartphones sold this year.
