Global smartphone shipments top one billion
More than one billion smartphones were shipped last year, with Samsung extending its lead as the world's biggest vendor, a new survey has showed.

According to market research firm IDC, 1.004 billion smartphones were shipped last year, marking a 38.4% increase from the previous year.

South Korea's Samsung accounted for the bulk of that figure, followed by Apple and China's Huawei, BBC reports. Smartphones made up more than half of the 1.8 billion mobile phones sold.

IDC said this was the first time more than one billion smartphone units were shipped in a single year.
