According to the preliminary results of the quarterly report of Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker from International Data Corporation (IDC), in the third quarter of 2015, producers have shipped in total of 355.2 million smartphones worldwide (3Q15), which is 6.8 % more than in the third quarter of last year.
Smartphone shipments in the third quarter of 2015 was slightly below the forecast of IDC in 363,8 million, mainly due to lower-than-expected iPhone shipments, as well as presenting flagship Android smartphone at a price that is out of the comfort zone of consumers.
