Android- The King of Smartphone Market

Android builds its dominance in the global market for operating systems of Smartphones. Around 263.4 million handsets sold out this year. Consumer demand combines the commercial success of many models and multiple initiatives from manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo.



62.5% of Android smartphones elapsed between April and June. Nearly 4 in 10 were wearing the print from Samsung. However, Apple is losing ground: 13.2% of the global smartphone OS market, against 16.6% a year earlier. BlackBerry: the Canadian telecoms manufacturer, which held 4.9% of the market in the 2nd quarter of 2012, has seen its share drop to 2.9%. Despite the commercialization of new products BB10 OS, its sales have lost 11.7% to 6.8 million copies.

Distributions optimized for mobile devices (Ubuntu,Firefox OS , Tizen, Sailfish OS …) could give a new impetus by the end of the year.

The market share of the other OS is less than 0.2%, as noted by Silicon.
