One million units of the Samsung GALAXY Note II sold in Samsung's backyard in 90 days

One million units of the Samsung GALAXY Note II sold in Samsung's backyard in 90 days
Selling more than twice as fast as its predecessor, the Samsung GALAXY Note II has sold 1 million units in Samsung's backyard in South Korea in the first 90 days after launch. Globally, 5 million units were sold near the end of last month and the 5.5 inch phablet is on pace to sell 10 million units in its first 4 to 5 months on the market. That would put the newer model at a sales pace about twice as fast as the original Samsung GALAXY Note which amassed 10 million in sales in its first 10 months on the market. Samsung Mobile's top executive, J.K. Shin, predicted back in September that the Samsung GALAXY Note II would sell 20 million units in a year.

It is hard enough for a manufacturer to build one hot device, but Samsung keeps rolling out flagship Android models that are in heavy demand. You might recall that early last month, Samsung celebrated the sale of 30 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Consider that the original Samsung Galaxy S sold 10 million units in 2011 and the Samsung Galaxy S II sold 20 million by earlier this year, and you can see a pattern of increasing sales.

Talk now has moved to what we might see on the Samsung Galaxy S IV and the Samsung GALAXY Note III. The latter is rumored to have a 6.3 inch screen, two-tenths of an inch larger than the screen on the Huawei Ascend Mate that will be introduced next month at CES 2013. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is expected to launch in April with a 5 inch AMOLED screen offering 1080p resolution and a 441ppi pixel density. Other specs include a quad-core Exynos 5440 processor, and a 13MP rear-facing camera all in a slightly thicker 9.2mm body. This time around, Samsung will supposedly toss the S Pen in with the phone.
