Sales of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone have surpassed 10 million in under 2 months, reports yonhapnews.
Shin Jong-kyun, the president of Samsung’s information technology and mobile communication division, told reporters that the phone has become a 10-million seller after it was first unveiled on May 29 in London. He, however, did not give exact numbers.
This translates into about 190,000 Galaxy S3s being sold every day, and easily ahead of its very popular predecessor — the Galaxy S2 — that reported sales hitting 10 million, five months after it reached consumers.
Sales of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will likely remain strong in the third quarter since Apple isn’t expected to unveil its next generation smartphone until September or October.
