Samsung Dominates 65% Of Global Android Market [Report]


Everyone knows that Samsung is one of the biggest Android OEMs out there. Its devices cater to all price ranges. The company offers low-end, mid-range and high-end smartphones and tablets to millions of customers around the world. One can assume that it may command a substantial chunk of the global Android market. Taiwanese trade publication Digitimes claims that Samsung now holds 65 percent of the entire market, leaving most of its competitors far behind.

LG, HTC, Sony and Motorola have emerged as serious contenders in the not so distant past. However, they’re believed to have 7 percent, 6 percent, 5 percent and 4 percent of the global Android market share respectively.

Sources tell the publication that Lenovo has a better chance of surpassing all of these OEMs to trail behind Samsung in second place. The Beijing-based company already has a strong presence and ample market share in its home country. Given that it has acquired Motorola Mobility, Lenovo is going to benefit from its reputation and brand awareness in the West. Even then it would be hard to catch up with Samsung, which leads by quite a large margin.
