Samsung is looking to eclipse its 2012 sales record by shipping more than a half billion phones in 2013.
To be exact, Samsung is planning to ship 510 million phones next year, according to The Korea Times. That would represent a 20% increase over the 420 million phones Samsung is estimated to ship for 2012, according to the report.
Broken out, 390 million of the devices are expected to be smartphones while the other 120 million would be feature and budget phones, according to The Korea Times, which cites unnamed sources at Samsung and its suppliers.
That's quite a goal for Samsung, but if any company in the world could do it, it would be the South Korean tech giant, which this year is set to overtake Nokia as the top cellphone brand on the planet.
