Days after Samsung revealed that its Galaxy Note II has sold more than 3 million units, the Korean manufacturer has confirmed that the Galaxy S III has sold more than 30 million units. Samsung announced that the Galaxy S III reached the 30 million sales milestone within five months since its release in May. By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S II sold only 10 million units within its first five months.
Samsung estimated in September that it would sell 30 million units of the Galaxy S III by the end of the year, and the forecast has proven accurate nearly two months early. The Galaxy S III has had an average sales rate of more than 200,000 per day. Despite competition from the Apple iPhone, which has enjoyed its own multimillion milestone recently, Samsung has managed to make the Galaxy S III a continuous seller.
JK Shin, head of IT & Mobile Communications at Samsung, released the following statement in conjunction with today's announcement:
"The GALAXY S III continues to be a runaway favorite with customers around the world. Meeting this sales milestone in five months sets another record for Samsung, and we are extremely proud and yet motivated to continue to provide our customers with products that they love. On behalf of Samsung Mobile, I appreciate millions of customers around the world that have chosen the Samsung GALAXY S III."source: Samsung
