South Korean sales of the Samsung Galaxy S III set a launch day record for the country
With 50,000 units of the Samsung Galaxy S III sold in South Korea on its first day, the manufacturer set a record for the launch day sales of any Samsung product in its backyard
. The version of the phone sold in South Korea includes a quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM and LTE connectivity. The results nearly doubled the 24,000 units of the Samsung Galaxy S II sold on its first day of sales in Korea last year, and handily outperformed the 10,000 units of the Samsung Galaxy S that were rung up on that model's opening day in Korea two years ago.
Samsung expects to sell a whopping 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III by the end of this month alone. Its predecessor, no slouch at the cash register either, sold 20 million units
last year with about 5 million of those coming from South Korea
