Samsung has won a double-digit share of the Western European smartphone market for the first time.
According to market researcher Strategy Analytics, Samsung smartphones accounted for 10.9 percent of the market in the third quarter.
The rise is due to the popularity of models such as the Galaxy S and Wave, Samsung said.
Nokia held the top spot in the quarter with a more than 31-percent share, followed by Apple and RIM, with Samsung at fourth and Taiwan's HTC in fifth place.
Market watchers say Nokia is rapidly losing ground, while Samsung has been showing astronomical growth since last year.
