Of course, not all will be smartphones. Samsung believes 120 million will be feature phones, while a smartphones will account for a whopping 390 million units. What’s more, Samsung is not solely focusing on Andrpid. Windows Phone 8 and Tizen devices are also in the mix.

However, it is still unclear how many WP8 and Tizen devices Samsung hopes to sell.
