Samsung Galaxy S
Sales of the company's flagship mobile should see Samsung in to fourth spot in the smartphone market

Samsung claims to have sold more than five million Galaxy S handsets since the multimedia mobile launched in June this year.

The company is hoping to sell another five million Galaxy S handsets in the current quarter and aims to hit a total smartphone sales figure of 25 million for 2010.

These figures would see Samsung take fourth position in the global smartphone rankings behind Nokia, Research in Motion – makers of the Blackberry – and Apple.

The Android-powered mobile still has some way to go if it wants to match Apple's ubiquitous iPhone. The iPhone 4, which also launched in June but was limited to certain carriers, has sold 8.4 million handsets.
