Samsung decides 56 smartphones a year is too many, will cut lineup by 30%

In 2014, Apple released two new smartphone models, Motorola released 11, and HTC came out with a pretty big lineup that saw 27 new phones released. These figures are all dwarfed by Samsung's output, though, which pumped out a whopping 56 new smartphones in 2014. The only company that comes close to Samsung is its Korean rival LG, which tried to keep pace with 41 smartphones.
