If you have been keeping abreast with other non-Apple products, you should know that one of the forces to be reckoned with in the smartphone industry today is Samsung's flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Galaxy S line is indeed some of the most successful smartphones around outside of the iPhone. Two months after it was launched, how do you think the Galaxy S III is doing in terms of sales? Well if this new report is any indication, it seems to be doing rather well. Reportedly, the Galaxy S III managed to ship 10 million units in 55 days.
According to a report by the Yonhap News Agency, Samsung's latest flagship smartphone has successfully surpassed the 10 million mark in less than two months after it was unveiled back on May 29 in London. Shin Jong-kyun, President of Samsung's information technology and mobile communication division, told reporters that the said phone is now a 10-million seller. Although specific numbers were not mentioned. At this rate, the Galaxy S III has been selling 190,000 per day which is more than can be said about its popular predecessor, the Galaxy S II. For the sake of comparison, it took five months for the S2 to reach 10-million units shipped.
About a month ago, Samsung publicly forecasted that the shipments for Galaxy S III will reach the 10-million mark by the end of July. And as you can see, they are way ahead of schedule which is definitely impressive. The interest for this particular handset is so high that Samsung expects to sell 40 million units by the time the year ends. It would be interesting to know if this success of the Galaxy S III has somehow affected the iPhone's sales. And it would also be interesting to know just how popular (or not) the Galaxy S III will become once the next iteration of the iPhone is unveiled. This is definitely a win for Samsung.
