[Infographic] History of Samsung Mobile Phones: 10 Million Seller Club

December 10, 2013 | Comments |

Samsung Electronics has been making mobile phones since the 80's. As you know, that is a good chunk of history for the mobile phone industry. As we are closing out 2013, here at Samsung Tomorrow, we wanted to look back on this history with you.


However, we understand the ‘history’ could be overwhelming for some people. Therefore, we have figured out a way to share the history of Samsung mobile phones more vividly. Infographics!


As the beginning of this grand history project and as a celebration of the Galaxy Note 3’s recent achievement of selling more than 10 million units, we would like to present our beloved ‘10 million seller club’.

    Samsung’s next 10 million seller? A phone similar to the Note 3, but with a physical keyboard in clamshell form factor, maybe with a dual screen: A regular screen inside, and an e-ink screen outside

    Plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products period. At 63% market share of the entire android platform it’s pretty clear to me that Samsung is android period.
