Worldwide market share for smartphones

AP--Samsung and Apple dominate with nearly half of the worldwide market for smartphones. Samsung had an advantage in releasing its flagship Galaxy S III phone months ago. The latest iPhone is expected at an Apple event Wednesday.

Samsung says global sales of the S III have surpassed 20 million in a little more than three months. The S III came out in Europe in May and in the U.S. in June. A new iPhone should give Apple a boost as the holiday shopping season approaches.

Here are IDC's figures for worldwide smartphone unit shipments and market share in the second quarter of 2012:

— Samsung Electronics Co., 50.2 million units, 32.6 percent share (17 percent a year earlier)

— Apple Inc., 26 million units, 16.9 percent share (18.8 percent a year earlier)

— Nokia Corp., 10.2 million units, 6.6 percent share (15.4 percent a year earlier)

— HTC Corp., 8.8 million units, 5.7 percent share (10.7 percent a year earlier)

— ZTE Corp., 8 million units, 5.2 percent share (1.8 percent a year earlier)

— Other, 50.7 million units, 32.9 percent share (36.2 percent a year earlier)
