NEW YORK — Samsung Group has extended its lead over Apple Inc. in smart phones, in part because its new Galaxy phones came out before Apple updated its iPhone, research group IDC said Friday.
Samsung's Galaxy S3 phones got good reviews when they were released late in the second quarter. In the United States, the phones work with the faster fourth-generation, or 4G, networks that major wireless companies have been building.
An iPhone with 4G capabilities isn't expected until this fall. The current iPhone 4S came out in October.
