Samsung expected to top 10 million Galaxy S III units sold in July and it looks like the South Korean manufacturer managed to do just that, after reporting nine million units pre-ordered in May.
Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung’s information technology and mobile communication division, confirmed the ten million number, less than two months since its availability date at the end of May. However, Samsung did not provide exact numbers and gave out no information whatsoever regarding the U.S. Galaxy S III which became available in June. Still, the Galaxy S III can easily become Samsung’s best selling device ever (reaching 40 million units by the end of the year), especially that it’s biggest competitor, the iPhone, is not expected until Q3 or Q4. Furthermore, the phone is expected to receive the latest version of Android — 4.1 Jelly Bean — really soon, something which should appeal to current and future customers alike.
