Samsung has overtaken Apple for the title of world’s largest smartphone manufacturer in Q3, according to a new report. Citing a person familiar with the situation, the Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung shipped more than 20 million smartphones in the quarter ending September 30, substantially more than Apple, which revealed earlier this week that it sold over 17 million iPhones in the quarter ending Sept. 24. Apple stated that handset sales slowed noticeably over the second half of the period due to the intensification of speculation and rumors surrounding the then-unannounced iPhone 4S. Both companies surpassed former market leader Nokia, which shipped 16.8 million smartphones during the period.
