Samsung plans on 300M phones sold in 2011
An interview with Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung's mobile communications and digital imaging told us what Samsung's plans are. Samsung aim and expect to surpass last years shipment of phones - 25 million smartphones out of a total of 280 million sold - with 60 million smartphones and a total of 300 million phones which is near 1 million devices a day!
The expected increase in smartphones is quite bold although the Galaxy S II has been taken very well in Korea, Japan, Europe and other regions. Samsung have some new
Bada phones coming up this year which are said to be "noteworthy" and Samsung are planning some WP7 devices, possibly a WP7 version of the Galaxy S II.
Samsung are also rumored to release another galaxy device, the Galaxy Q. The Galaxy Q is rumored to boast a 5.3" SUPAMOLED screen (could be the Plus or normal) and it may have LTE, apart from that we'll have to wait and see.
Samsung menioned they plan on being the leaders as we enter 4G.
