A global hit: Samsung Galaxy S III Crossed 20 million sales in just 100 days
Samsung Galaxy S III shows that the gap between Android and iOS is shrinking over time. No solo Android phone has outsold the iPhone after a while, although one is creating a strong showing.
Samsung announced on Thursday that its Galaxy S III has crossed the 20 million sales mark in the 100 days since launching in May. The prior popular Samsung’s smartphone Galaxy S II took around 9 months to cross the same target, taking three times more than the Galaxy S III. A recent report said that at three of the four big U.S. carriers, the Galaxy S III did outsell the iPhone 4S in August, although consumers are likely waiting for the next iPhone, expected to be unveiled on Sept. 12.
Samsung should contribute its major success to:
• Europeans who pulled out 6 million Galaxy S III Smartphones.
• North America, the device was also a success where it sold 4 million units.
• Asians picked up 4.5 million units because of the sleek design and Android interface of the Galaxy S III.
• In South Korea, the home country of Samsung, 2.5 million devices were picked up.
Samsung’s Galaxy S III is said to be the first true contender to Apple’s iPhonn, with the success of this phone the gap between these two racehorses is drawing closer.
The question is still in many minds that will Samsung Galaxy S III continue to experience success after the iPhone 5 reaches market or will it fizzle out?
