Samsung (SSNLF.PK) provides earnings guidance for Q4, saying it likely turned a profit of $8.3B with overall smartphone shipments for the quarter totaling around 63M units - around 500 every minute. Shipments of it's flagship Galaxy S III, which overtook the iPhone 4S in the third quarter to become the world's best-selling smartphone, are likely to have slipped to around 15M from 18M in July-September, but estimated sales of around 8M Galaxy Note II 'phablets', should more than make up for that - pushing the overall smartphone shipments number to around 63M.

    23M S3 and N2 total ... not even HALF of their total smartphone shipments ... proving all along that the majority of Android's and Samsung's marketshare comes from mid-end and low-end phones

    I will not be surprised to see AAPL sell close to 23M of iPhone 5 alone for the quarter.
