X

2013 smartphone shipments have smashed through the 1 billion unit barrier for the first time, according to new rseearch from IDC.

Using their  Mobile Phone Tracker technology IDC claims that the total of 1,004.2 million units were shipped last year, which is said to be an increase of 38.4 percent from the 725.3 million smartphones shipped in 2012, with smartphones now accounting for 55.1 percent of mobile phone shipments for the year, up from last year’s 41.7-percent share.

Figures from Strategy Analytics suggest a slightly different story. While it claims a similar 41-percent growth in shipments for 2013 over 2012, it believes that shipment numbers fell short of the milestone, reaching just 990 million units. 

The full-year shipment figures from IDC place Samsung in first place with 31.3 percent of the market, up from the 30.3 percent it reached in 2012. Apple is said to cover 15.3 percent of shipments, down from the 18.7 percent last year. Third place Huawei is followed by LG and Lenovo, representing 4.9 percent, 4.8 percent, and 4.5 percent respectively. Other smartphone producers make up the remaining 39.3 percent of the market.
