Canaccord's Mike Walkley cuts his 2013 smartphone sales forecast by 20M to 959M, and his 2014 forecast by 40M to 1.25B, citing surveys pointing to softer high-end sales, especially in Europe. While the surveys indicate iPhone 4 (AAPL -0.1%) and Galaxy S III (SSNLF.PK) sales were above expectations, they suggest the opposite for the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4. Also, low-end/mid-range Android sales from Chinese OEMs are said to be "very strong" (good for SPRD), and high-end Lumia (NOK -2.4%) sales soft. Sales of the cheaper Lumia 520 and 620 are deemed "solid," but Walkley expects sell-in to slow as inventories rise. His report comes shortly after Samsung forecast light Q2 profits, and Wedge Partners reported of iPhone build order cuts. (also)
