Samsung has officially passed Nokia as the world’s largest seller of phones, according to a new report from Strategy Analytics. Samsung recently announced that it sold 93.5 million phones during the first quarter of this year, which represented a 25.4% share of the entire mobile phone market. Nokia, conversely, sold a lesser 82.7 million phones, just 22.5% of the global market. Apple took third place with a 9.5% share of the global phone market. These figures represent all handsets, not just smartphones. The report from Strategy Analytics is on a par with earlier expectations from Reuters, which we wrote about earlier this month.
