The 20 million smartphones sold gives us a foundation to build on in the premium segment too,” Shin told Korea Times. “Our plan for this year is to sell 60 million smartphones and cement ourselves as a global top-tier brand in this segment.” Shin said last week that Samsung plans to introduce several new smartphone and tablet models next month at Mobile World Congress.
