According to Juniper Research, phablets are now officially successful, having shipped around 20 million units in 2013, and an expected 120 million units shipped by 2018.

The growth in phablets since their introduction to the market is undeniable, with extremely successful devices being found in the Samsung Galaxy Note series, such as the Galaxy Note 3, and in a number of LG’s devices, such as the newly released LG G Flex.

The term phablets rose to prominence in order to describe a device that is a hybrid of a phone and a tablet. According to Juniper, in order for a device to be classed as a phablet, it must have a screen size of at least 5.6 inches.
