Samsung sees rise in global smartphone market share for Q1 2015

Samsung logoIt wasn’t too long ago that Samsung took the wraps off their latest flagship handsets, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Both handsets took the world by storm which is something Samsung did not anticipate and it seems that it has helped the company with its global market share, which according to recent stats from TrendForce (via SamMobile) has seen an increase from last year.

Based on the data, Samsung’s global market share is sitting at 27.8%. This is based on smartphone shipments alone. This also represents a rather impressive increase from Q4 2014 where Samsung was sitting at 24.7%. This puts them way ahead of Apple who is at 19.9% in Q1 2015 which is actually a drop from Q4 where the Cupertino company was at 23.2%. It looks like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets did a good job at drawing customers to it.

As for other OEMs on the list, we have Huawei at 7% for Q1, an increase of 0.1% from the last quarter. LG is also on that list in fourth place at 6.2%, an increase from 5.3% last quarter and will also be interesting to watch with the LG G4’s launch coming up. Lenovo is also on that list with a 6% market share, a drop from 7.1% last quarter. Oddly enough other handset manufacturers did not make the list, such as HTC or Sony.
