Samsung surpasses 100 million sales of its Galaxy S series smartphones
Samsung Electronics’ flagship Galaxy S series has surpassed an accumulated sales record of 100 million units from the supply side in just 2 years and 7 months after its launch in May 2010.
Galaxy S III is the hottest selling device for Samsung as of now, selling at a much faster rate of 30 million in 5 months or 40 million in 7 months. It took only 50 days after its release for the Galaxy S III to reach its first million milestone last May. Currently, its average daily sales are 190,000 units. That’s more than 2 devices every second or around 131 devices every minute, an impressive feat.
The main propulsive force behind Samsung Electronics’ rise to the top on the global smartphone market is the Galaxy S II, which is gaining ground as a steady seller, hitting sales of over 40 million in only 20 months.
With the Galaxy Note II already having surpassed its 1 million sales landmark in Korea and ready to hit 10 million in a month, Samsung is in the driving seat of smartphones’ market. Its Galaxy S series and its Note series covers a wide range of market and caters to every need, and that has helped Samsung affirming its position as the leader in the extremely competitive smartphone market.
