Boosted by strong Galaxy S III sales, Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is estimated to have sold 50M smartphones in Q2, according to analysts polled by Reuters. That's easily above the 30.5M iPhones Apple (AAPL) is believed to have sold (ed: many firms have dropped their Q2 estimates below 30M in recent days). Samsung's Android phones often sell at much lower price points than the iPhone, and that has helped them take share from Nokia (NOK) and others in Europe and emerging markets.
