Over one billion smartphones were shipped last year


Last year was a massive year for smartphones, with over one billion smartphones shipped last year. The International Data Corporation has some data that shows that 1,004.2 million smartphones were shipped last year.

This is an increase of 38.4% from last year, where 725.3 million smartphones were shipped. Of those 1 billion smartphones shipped, Samsung held the lions share with 313.9 million handsets, increasing its market share from 30.3% to 31.3%. Apple took second place with 153.4 million iPhones shipped over the course of 12 months.

Apple's market share slipped however, from 18.7% to 15.3%, even with it posting a record number of iPhones in the last quarter. Huawei, LG, and Lenovo did not mind though, as they scooped up that lost market share. Huawei shipped 48.8 million, LG shipped 47.4 million, and Lenovo pushed out an impressive 45.5 million smartphones in the quarter.
