Samsung Galaxy Apple turnover

Saturday 28 July 2012 00:27

Samsung's Galaxy smartphones are outselling rival Apple's iPhones by nearly two to one, leading to record second-quarter profits for the Korean technology giant.

Samsung saw operating profits hit an all-time high of 6.7trn won (£2.7bn) between April and June, 79 per cent above a year earlier.

Industry estimates suggest Samsung shipped over 50 million phones over the quarter – almost twice Apple's 26 million iPhones. Samsung also ended Nokia's reign as the top global handset-maker.
