Global smartphone shipments reach 267 million for Q1 2014

With the year bringing so many new releases and launches, it is not surprising to find out that the number for the total Global smartphone shipments have reached 266.9 million units within the first quarter of this year, as mentioned in the recent report issued by the market researcher TrendForce. As compared to the previous year, this three month period has shown an increase of 1.13%. And accoriding to the sources of the same report, it is expected that these smartphone shipments are going to increase by 6.7% to reach 284.5 million units globally in the current quarter, which runs from April to June.

Among these, the leader has been Samsung which again comes as no big surprise. The Korean manufacturer gets a 30% market share of global smartphone shipments and most of the units shipped from this manufacturer included in the first quarter included low to mid-range smartphones.

Apple on the other hand has generated quite disappointing results with a noticeable decline in its worldwide market share but it has still managed to secure the second position. There are expectations that the upcoming iPhones are going to pull back Apple and will help the company gain momentum in the second half of 2014. Other players in the market including the Chinese smartphone vendors - Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi have also improved their presence in the market and they have experienced growth of more than 20% in the first quarter this year.
