Bloomberg – Samsung Smartphone sales may beat the iPhone

Samsung are on a roll. Their Galaxy S2 is simply stunning and we’ve been suitably impressed by the Galaxy Ace. Today Bloomberg are reporting that Samsung handset sales are growing strongly…

Samsung is estimated to have sold between 18 million and 21 million smartphones globally in the April-June quarter, compared with 16.7 million for Nokia and 20.3 million iPhones.

Although these are “expected” figures the S2 apparently played a large part in Samsung beating the iPhone in sales..

The latest 4.27-inch Galaxy phone, unveiled in February, helped Samsung more than double operating profit at its mobile phone business in the second quarter.
