Samsung Electronics said it shipped more than twice as many smartphones as Apple in the third quarter.
Samsung's lead over Apple in smartphone shipments has expanded in the past year thanks to Samsung's range of offerings and the popularity of its newer models such as the GALAXY S III. In the third quarter of last year, Samsung shipped about 35 percent more handsets than Apple, according to ABI.
In the quarter, Samsung shipped 55.5 million smartphones, up 109 percent from the third quarter of 2011, according to ABI. Apple's smartphone shipments, meanwhile, grew to 26.9 million, up 58 percent from the third quarter of 2011.
