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.
