Samsung is planning to sell 374 million handsets next year

Samsung is looking to heat up the competition with rival Nokia in 2012 by increasing handset sales by 15 percent.

According to Samsung, it is planning to sell 374 million handsets next year, which is a 15 percent increase from the company's projected 325 million handsets for 2011.

Of the 374 million handsets, Samsung hopes to sell 150 million smartphones in 2012.


Samsung's rival Nokia, on the other hand, is expected to see a 5 percent decrease in handset sales for 2012 at 399 million. The company has had some issues recently with its first Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800. The new addition to the Windows/Nokia family was accused of having faulty battery hardware, but Nokia revealed that broken firmware was the reason for the phone's problems.

It's very possible that Samsung could beat out the competition and increase sales, since it already managed to surpass Apple as the world's top smartphone vendor from July to September 2011 with its Galaxy S smartphones. This was quite a feat for Samsung, considering all the lawsuits flung back and forth between the two companies this year over Galaxy/iPhone/iPad infringement.
