20 million Samsung smartphones sold in 2010, 60 million to be sold this year

Just yesterday, we were telling you that Samsung hopes to sell more than 50 million smartphones throughout 2011.

Well, in fact it wants to sell 60 million.

The Korea Times reports that the company has shipped 20 million smartphones in 2010 – which gives it confidence that it will hit the 60 million mark this year. Android and Bada handsets will account for the majority of Samsung’s smartphone shipments.

“Our plan for this year is to sell 60 million smartphones and cement ourselves as a global top-tier brand in this segment. It will be important for us to establish stronger positions in regions such as Southeast Asia, China, and Central and South America instead of just relying on advanced markets,” declared Shin Jong-kyun, the head of Samsung’s mobile business division.

Samsung has already announced two new high-end Android phones this year: the Samsung 4G LTE for Verizon, and the Samsung Infuse 4G for AT&T (pictured above).

A successor to the popular Galaxy S (possibly named Samsung Galaxy S 2) is expected to be unveiled soon.
