Samsung has big plans for their mobile business in 2013, and they all start with their flagship Galaxy S4. The company is hoping the new handset can help to drive overall mobile sales to a record high 500 million units this year. The number, while setting the mark quite high, is not totally outside the realm of what Samsung is capable of.
Last year the Korean mobile maker pushed just a hair under 400 million handsets. While the additional million the company hopes to move in 2013 is nothing to scoff at, rising brand awareness and offerings like the GS4 and upcoming Galaxy Note 3 certainly give them a good shot. It would be an unprecedented showing for any OEM, but for Samsung it would solidify their position as the king of mobile.
