Samsung Electronics has predicted that its 2011 smartphone shipments in Taiwan will double from last year, wireless communication device manufacturers may be interested to learn.
This forecast comes on the back of high-tier models running Google's Android software, a company executive confirmed.
"With the expectation to double our worldwide shipments of the Galaxy S II in 2011 from the previous version, we hope the new model will achieve the same goal in Taiwan this year," commented Andy Tu, general manager of Taiwan's mobile communication team.
He added that the manufacturer will unveil new products using the Android and its own Bada system in the second half of 2011 in Taiwan.
In April, Samsung Electronics confirmed that sales of the Galaxy S exceeded 14 million units globally since its launch in June 2010.
Samsung Electronics is the flagship subsidiary of the Samsung Group and boasts assembly plants and sales networks in 65 countries across the world.
