Luke Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 25 November 2013]

Global smartphone shipments are expected to reach about 1.24 billion in 2014, up 30% on year, according to Digitimes Research.

The increase in growth is expected to be driven by demand in Russia, India, Indonesia and Latin America countries.

Digitimes Research believes that Samsung Electronics will lead the way in shipments followed by Apple, LG Electronics, Sony, Lenovo, Huawei Device, Microsoft, ZTE, Coolpad and TCL.

Android and IOS operating systems are expected to be used in about 93% of the devices shipped in 2014, added Digitimes Research.
