Samsung shipped a total of 120.1 million mobile phones last quarter. Overall Q3 racked up a 17% increase in global mobile phone shipments compared to a year ago. Strategy Analytics says that much of the strong demand for Samsung devices came courtesy of the popular Note 3 and the Galaxy Y as well as other mass-market devices.
The second place spot in the global mobile phone market went to Nokia with 15.5% of the market. Apple had 8% of the global mobile phone market for Q3 with LG grabbing 4.4%. The fifth-place spot went to Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei with 3.5% of the market. Nokia's share of the mobile phone market around the world was down significantly compared to a year ago.
"Nokia shipped a slightly better-than-expected 64.6 million mobile phones worldwide in Q3 2013," Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston said in a statement. "Nokia's 15 percent global mobile phone market share is showing signs of stabilizing sequentially as demand for the Microsoft Lumia smartphone range is improving. However, Nokia's feature phone unit remains a problem-child as global volumes dipped -27 percent year-over-year."
