With all of the legal proceedings and potential fines that Samsung is facing in their ongoing fight with Apple, the Korean tech company is in need of some good news and today, the company reported on the success of its flagship Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S III.
You may recall that 50 days after its launch, the company had sold approximately 10 million devices. We’re now 100 days out from the launch day and sales of the Galaxy S III remain steady with the company now reporting 20 million units having been sold. For Samsung, it’s good to see that demand for this device remains steady, especially in China, North America and Europe, three key markets for the company. Based upon Samsung’s numbers, Europe accounts for 6 million sales, while North American and Asia account for 4 million and 4.5 million sales respectively. Even within Samsung’s home market of Korea, the Galaxy S III has see roughly 2.5 million handsets moved. To continue with the numbers, Samsung has also confirmed that on a daily basis, 200,000 devices are being sold around the world.
It’s number such as these which has resulted in the Galaxy S III being the top selling smartphone in August, beating out the iPhone 4S to gain this title. That however is likely to change later this month once Apple comes out with their iPhone 5, but for now, we’ll give Samsung their spot in the limelight.
