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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
