South Korea-based Samsung is aiming to sell a whopping 200 million smartphones this year to grab 24 percent of the global handset market share, Samsung’s J.K. Shin said to MarketWatch. It looks like the company might be on the way to its goal, because it sold an estimated 44.5 million smartphones during Q1 2012. Moreover, with the impressive software and hardware revealed on the Galaxy S III in London yesterday, it could push customers that were waiting for the new device to finally make their purchase. The company will definitely continue to rack-in a ton of sales this year and expect Samsung to report some serious numbers into the summer. Last year, the company had 21.1-percent of the market share, so it would definitely be a pretty impressive feat.
