Samsung has confirmed some rather impressive sales figures for its current flagship handset, the Galaxy S3
Samsung has confirmed that it has shipped 30 million Galaxy S3 devices in 157 days – that’s 190,000 units a day, in case you were wondering.
The world’s biggest handset manufacturer confirmed the news via an official announcement, solidifying its chops as one of the biggest players in tech.
Here’s the official line via Samsung:
‘Samsung Electronics announced on the 4th that the global accumulated sales of Galaxy S III for the past 5 months surpassed 30 million from the supply side. The sales of Galaxy S III reached 10 million mark in 50 days, 20 million in 100 days, and finally 30 million in five months.
Simply put, one Galaxy S III was sold for every 0.45 seconds, and its daily sales stand at 190,000 units (for 157 days). Samsung Electronics once again claimed the clear leadership position in the smart phone market segment as Galaxy S III became yet another smash-hit with 30 million global sales record following in the footsteps of Galaxy S II.’
Samsung recently confirmed that it had shifted around three million of its recently launched Galaxy Note 2 phablet. Couple this with existing sales of its still-popular Galaxy S2, soon to be released Windows Phone 8-powered Ativ S, and arsenal of low-end budget devices and it’s clear that Samsung’s business is only going one way. Upwards.
Samsung is expected to unveil the follow-up to the Galaxy S3, known imaginatively at the Samsung Galaxy S4, as CES 2013 along with a complete overhaul of its corporate branding.
