The Samsung Galaxy S III has sold 20 million units

The Samsung Galaxy S III has certainly proven itself worthy to the title as the Samsung's flagship model. The Korean based tech titan announced on Thursday that the device has sold in excess of 20 million units in just 100 days. That is three times faster than the Samsung Galaxy S II, which was no slouch itself, and 6 times faster than the Samsung Galaxy S.

Samsung has broken down the sales by region with 6 million rung up in Europe, 4.5 million sold in Asia, 4 million in North America and 2.5 million in Korea. Samsung says that 200,000 units a day are being sold. And the amazing thing is that Samsung has some other hot selling devices right on the heels of the Galaxy S III. For example, the Samsung GALAXY Note has surpassed 10 million units in sales with the slightly larger sequel already introduced and ready to be launched. Sounds like some company has the Midas Touch right now!

Thanks, Sean!

aww. can't you just see their statement? And have you seen the hands-on vids from many people?

Besides, the video that you are talking about didn't say that it was captured with 920. It just shows the difference a camera with and a camera without OIS.

Patent that Samsung. As soon as Apple sells 20 million iPhone 5 in about or less than 100 days, sue them.

Fake information for increasing the sale. Because no one going for s3, every one going for note or oneX.

Don't believe on this.

The One X is also a great phone, but it's sales have been piddling. The Note has sold well, but not nearly to the level of the SGS3. Sammy has a winner here. Fastest selling/most presold, best selling currently.

Not totally wrong as statement, I believe that many use this technique to build up hype - especially Apple.

Like for music charts, song at n.1 convince people to buy it and afterwards really becomes the n.1. We saw many billboard scandals in the past.

Cause - effect phenomena is one of the most efficient propaganda tools. Don't know if this is the case, but I barely believe to any statistic.

Anyway it's possible Sammy sold so many units, because they generated a lot of hype in pure Apple style. However, they can't compete with all the subliminal iphone advertising in tv shows or movies

If s3 Is outselling the predecessor at such rate, I think the Note 2 will sell big(pun intended).
Around 20-30 million overall doesn't seem far fetched.
Seems like android tablets ain't doing bad after all, haha

So 1 billion dollar (not yet paid) advertisement campaign worked well for Samsung (and campaign isn't over as yet) :)

I'm glad the iPhone trend is starting to go away. I was getting pretty sick and tired of all the iCrap and hearing everyone say it is the best phone. GO SAMSUNG !!

Well the only reason I bought the galaxy S3 was because I was confused. I though it was a new apple iphone

Yest when i handled my freind's Samsung Galaxy SIII, i was shocked to see that it hangs as well!!! i mean i believed dat a phone with 4 cores and costing around Rs.40,000 in my country (India) can never hang...i was apalled to see the lag...similarly samsung galaxy y (a cheap andrioid phone) starts freezing as sooon as the sms count crosses 200 (yes, a mere 200 texts!!!). Its sshockinggg!! wats da use if a 40,000 phone starts lagging and keeps hanging!!! Was planning to buy SIII however, i believe i should consider some other good options!!!
Also samsung build quality feels cheap. such an expensive phone should wear a good sturdy body!!! It again points to the fact that anything korean or chinese is cheap!!!!Hence its better to keep away from korean stuff for their cheap quality!! be it samsung or be it a hyundai car!!!!
Its just dat samsung is hrough this lucky phase..dont forget dat Nokia also has had such a phase and finally i saw the end!!! MORAL OF THE STORY - SUCCESS ISNT FOREVER!!!! So, Dear samsung, make hay while the sub shines..surely destiny will move things in another direction...veryy sooon!!!!
