Samsung Electronics Co. (KRX:005930) is well-known for its sales milestones. For example, the Korean manufacturer’s most recent flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5, shipped 10 million units in just 25 days after it was launched in April. But Samsung quietly achieved another milestone recently when it released its 101st Android-powered smartphone model.
Tech website Phone Arena recently discovered that Samsung has released a total of 114 device models powered by the Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android operating system since 2009, when the company released the original Samsung Galaxy. The device featured 3.2-inch HVGA display, a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A processor, 128MB of RAM and the Android 1.5 Cupcake operating system.
Since then, Samsung has updated its Android devices steadily, and when it introduced the Samsung Galaxy S line in 2010, the company became an undisputed international consumer electronics powerhouse. The most recent smartphone in that product line, the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A model, features a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 resolution) Super AMOLED display, a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM and the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.
However, Samsung was not the first manufacturer to release an Android-powered smartphone. HTC Corp. (TPE: 2498) did so in 2008 with the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream).
