iPhone 5 is the only Apple smartphone to support LTE networks. According to Strategy Analytics, Cupertino Company owns the 27% of global 4G market, gnawing the 10% shares of Samsung.
Samsung is leading the LTE industry with 40% of the market. Apple, after the explosive entry into the market of the iPhone 5, nibbled a good 10% of South Korean shares, bringing the Korean company share from 50% to 40% in the last quarter.
The other competitors produced unsatisfactory results: Motorola and LG, which each had 15% of the LTE market, now find themselves with 6.7 and 9% respectively.
Analysts, reported that currently there are 50 million users of 4G networks recorded in 2012, an incredible increase if we consider that at the end of 2011 they were counted only 9 million. The result is due primarily to the success of devices such as iPhone and Samsung Galaxy 5 S3, that they literally dragged the market.
If you want to go further, the studies conducted by The Next Web speculate 188 million LTE users by the end of 2013, and 586 million by 2016.
