Samsung: 10 million Galaxy S III’s shipped in one month’s time
Well, this doesn’t come to us as much of a surprise, considering Samsung predicted these numbers back in June, but it seems the Galaxy S III has surpassed 10 million phones sold, in only a month since being released. Pretty impressive, eh?
This tidbit comes directly from Samsung Senior Executive, Shin Jong-kyun, who provided details to reporters in South Korea. “It appears that it (accumulated sales) has exceeded 10 million units.” Not bad, Shin. Not bad at all.
Furthermore, it looks like Sammy expects to double this already-staggering total with an astounding 20 million shipped by this fall.
As a proud owner myself, I have no trouble believing this goal is within reach for Samsung. The device is the best phone I’ve ever owned, as you can tell from my 3-part review, which took forever and a day to write because I wanted to give the device the proper attention it deserves, and not just a quick once over, like in some of the other reviews I’ve read.
With the device already in the hands of the CyanogenMod team (among many others), there are already “Preview Builds” of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) for the United States and International variants of the device, as well as a handful of stable ROMs available over in the Development Forums on XDA (US/International). We’ve also heard that Samsung is targeting Q4 for an official Jelly Bean update.
How about you? Who’s rocking a Galaxy S III out there?
