Samsung began selling the Samsung Galaxy S III 100 days ago, and now the company is claiming sales figures of 20 million units.
The Galaxy S III broke the 10 million units mark in just 50 days thanks to massive pre-order sales which helped draw immediate attention to the high-tech smartphone. Since that time the device has racked up the same number of sales over the same period of time, proving a nice level of consistency for Samsung.
With the iPhone 5 just around the corner, Samsung will likely see a decrease in overall sales numbers.
Samsung can contribute its biggest successes to Europeans who picked up 6 million Galaxy S III Smartphones. In North America, the device was also a success where it sold 4 million units. Asians also appreciated the sleek design and Android interface of the Galaxy S III and picked up 4.5 million units. In South Korea, the home country of Samsung, 2.5 million devices were picked up.
At current rates, the Samsung Galaxy S III is still at three times the rate of the S II and six times the rate of the original Galaxy S.
In the meantime, Apple is attempting to beat Samsung the only way it knows how, filing another court case in which the company claims Samsung violated four of its patents in regards to the new smartphone. Apple is seeking payments and sales injunctions against the product.
Do you think the Samsung Galaxy S III will continue to experience success after the iPhone 5 reaches market or will it fizzle out?
