According to reports, Samsung is going to lower the shipment of its smartphones in 2016 by 12%. This means the company would be shipping about 420-430 million units next year. Samsung is going to focus less on its high-end S series, and more on its budget and mid-range phones. The J series and the A series ensured that Samsung performed well in 2015. However, the year also saw a fall in the over-all demand of smartphones globally.
While Samsung still continued to be a leading smartphone manufacturer despite the falling demands, the company is altering its course a little next year. There will be some new additions to the Samsung Galaxy A and J series. There are also big plans [...]
Meizu has revealed that it sold 20 million smartphones this year, all across Asia and parts of Europe (its devices are yet not officially available in the US). The current number of 20 million is a massive leap from last year’s 4.4 million. Meizu has increased its sales by an astonishing 350% according to these numbers.
The budget pricing, along with the design of the devices, seems to have worked wonders for Meizu. The smooth functioning of the phones, which are equipped with Flyme custom skin on top of Android, has won the company many fans.
One of the most recent launches in India by Meizu include the Meizu M2. It was launched exclusively on Snapdeal a couple [...]
Apple -that one company everyone loves to hate is in the news again. And this time for making incredible amounts of money at the end of another fiscal fourth quarter. The California-based tech giant announced its revenue and profit for the quarter which ended on the 26th of September.

This is in contrast with numbers in the same quarter last year which were $42.1 billion along with a net profit of $8.5 billion. Yes, that’s a lot of money.

We reported how the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were getting phenomenal amounts of preorders in the USA, but the Apple wonder seems to have left its sparkle in America itself. India hasn’t taken to the iPhones too well as the opening weekend response has been tepid.
The devices managed to sell only 50,000 units out of a total of 165,000 (which is thrice the amount that was available last year).
The phones were launched in India on October 16th and it is highly likely that customers are either waiting for the price slash or it could also be because [...]
Pacific Crest, an investment bank, revealed on Sunday that the latest Apple smartphone has so far sold less than the expected number analysts had in mind. The expected numbers are around 76 million while the shipments so far have been of around 67 million iPhones.
Within three days of its launch on 25th September, Apple had gone ahead to make an official statement of how the sales have been unprecedented in the history of iPhones with 13 millions devices sold by 28th September. In the light of these claims, Pacific Crest’s report comes as a surprise. The company claims that Apple has seen a drop in the demand of the phones since then, resulting in reduced orders being [...]
If the research conducted by Localytics is to be believed, iPhone 6s is faring way better than iPhone 6s Plus with about 1.5% of all Apple users using it. This is in contrast with a puny 0.4% of 6s Plus. The heftier price tag of the latter could be one of the reasons why customers are reluctant to opt for the device, along with its increased physical size as well.The two devices have set unprecedented records in terms of sales at Apple. Just the first three days of the launch of the two smartphones brought with it 10 million sold devices. However, statistics also show that the most popular iPhone so far is iPhone 6, followed by 5s and 5.
Apple is all set to create another record with the launch of the iPhone 6s that began on Friday. The sale of the latest device is estimated to fall between 11 to 13 million this weekend. Foursquare and Swarm are working together to find out the foot traffic at Apple retail stores across the world based on the information from their apps.
“Based off of early indicators, we predict that launch day traffic will be about 360 percent higher than preceding weeks. This likely means that iPhone sales will surpass previous records, in the 11 to 13 million range.” A report cited.

They also said that the worldwide smartphones sales grew at the slowest pace since 2013, with China accounting for 30 percent of the total smartphones sales during this second [...]
HTC Corp. has come under a lot of slack, for the past couple of years for being “confused, unoriginal and uncompetitive”. With their shares having fallen by 51 percent so far, the Taiwanese smartphone makers have reportedly announced, that they would be cutting jobs and discontinuing models so that they can focus on high-end devices, which they hope will enable them to compete with Apple Inc. and Samsung.
“The cuts will be across the board,” said Chief Financial Officer Chialin Chang, “they will be significant.”
He also mentioned that the cost reductions would extend up to the first quarter of the [...]
