The original Samsung Galaxy Note took 9 months to reach 10 million units shipped, while the Samsung GALAXY Note II achieved this in 4 months. And with some new color options on the way, there could be continued demand for the Galaxy Note 3. Samsung says that in September, it released the phablet in 50 countries and sales remain strong in Southeast Asian countries like China, South Korea, and Japan.
As of October, 30 million units of the Samsung GALAXY Note II were sold by the Korean OEM. Considering that the current phablet is running at a pace double that of the previous model, we could see 60 million units of the Galaxy Note 3 sell before all is said and done.
