Samsung Galaxy SIII Best Selling phone in Q3

Many people could have seen it coming for a while but it seems that the Galaxy SIII, Samsung’s premium range phone has dethroned the iPhone 4S as the bestselling phone for quarter 3 of 2012.
According to Strategy Analytics, the Samsung has managed to shift around 18m copies of its handset during the third quarter of this year, compared to 16.2 from the second latest version of the iPhone. One of the reasons that is attributed towards the iPhone 4S falling off top sport is the arrival of the new iPhone 5, which arrived just at the end of this quarter.
It seems that this arrival cannibalised the sales of the iPhone 4S and saw Samsung take the crown. However, because of this it seems that the iPhone will manage to do the honourable thing and win the crown back in the Christmas quarter of the year. This means Samsung will have to do more than it did in this quarter to take things back and not just be a mere bum warmer for the iPhone 5.
When sales of both iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 for the third quarter are added together it seems that the iPhone wins hands down. The 6m sales of iPhone 5 units, when added to iPhone 4S units sees Apple sail into the lead with 22.2m units shifted as opposed to Samsung’s 18. However, it does show a landmark movement in the premium phone’s market away from Apple.
