Once again Google’s open Android platform broke new ground for the market share lead, according to the latest press release from Canalys. This time Android surged by 20.5% from last year’s Q2 report to be at a whopping 68.1% of the global smartphone OS market share, due to the shipment of 107.8 million devices resulting in a 110.4% increase over last year (only 51.2 million shipments). Canalys also reported that one of the major factors for this huge increase was from Samsung, which had shipped a total of 45 million devices that also included the high-end Galaxy S III and the low-end Galaxy Y/Galaxy Mini devices.

Samsung’s sponsorship of the 2012 London Olympics and its rumored-upcoming phone the Galaxy Note 2 are sure going to help deliver a strong performance in Q3 said Canalys Principal Analyst, Pete Cunningham. You can read the full Canalys press release at the source link below.
