Meanwhile, Apple shipped about 26 million units during the quarter (about 18% market share).
Samsung’s second quarter was a knockout for the company. It reported a record $5.86 billion quarterly profit, up 79% from the same period last year due largely to a strong performance in Galaxy S smartphone sales.
