Samsung recently reported its second quarter 2012 results. The company noted a record $5.2 billion in profit for the quarter, which was primarily attributed to the company’s handset sales. The South Korea-based firm said it sold 93.5 million phones during the second quarter, including 44.5 million smartphones.
As a a result, Samsung now has a 30.6% share of the high-end smartphone market, Strategy Analytics told Reuters, compared to Apple’s 24.1% share. Samsung is expected to unveil its Exynos Quad-powered Galaxy S III on May 3rd during a press event in London, and that phone is largely expected to be just as popular — if not more so — than Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy S II devices.
