South Korea is where Samsung was founded and where it is headquartered. Thus, Samsung smartphones have long enjoyed loyalty among South Korean consumers. However, according to leading online retailer Expansys, the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 are currently outselling the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy S4 Mini in South Korea.
In fact, the BlackBerry Z10 is the number 1 selling smartphone in South Korea, while the BlackBerry Q10 is at number 2. Although the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is close behind at number 3, the Galaxy S4 is trailing as a distant number 17.
This is consistent with our previous observations that BlackBerry 10 smartphones are selling well outside the U.S.
