Samsung plans to ship half a billion handsets in 2013

Samsung logoThis year has been a big year for Samsung, and if all goes as planned, the good times will continue well into 2013.

According to The Korea Times, the phone manufacturer expects itself to ship over half a billion handsets -- 510 million to be exact -- next year.

In 2012 alone, Samsung shipped an estimated 420 million devices. If we go by next year's projections, it's aiming for a 20 percent jump in devices shipped.

Of the 510 million devices forecast, 390 million units are expected to be smartphones, while the remaining 120 million will be feature phones.

Also in Samsung's plans are more Microsoft Windows 8 handsets, and an executive at Samsung's telecommunications department noted the high user demand for LTE devices.

Despite its ongoing patent battle with Apple, which topped CNET's list of 2012's biggest tech stories, Samsung has managed to be a huge success both in the U.S. and overseas, thanks to its successful Galaxy line of phones, tablets, and even 'phablets.' Do you guys think Samsung has what it takes to fulfill its big projections for next year?
