Samsung today announced that the company has managed to sell, from the supply side, a total number of 100,000,000 Galaxy S phones. This number aggregates all Galaxy S devices in the line-up, including the original Galaxy S introduced in May 2010, the Galaxy S II unveiled at the 2011 MWC, and the Galaxy S III announced at the 2012 London Unpacked event in May.
Both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S III account for 40 million each, of the total announced, with the remaining 20 million representing sales for the original Galaxy S. According to Samsung, 190,000 Galaxy S III units are being sold on an average day which makes the phone Samsung’s best selling device yet.
The company is preparing this year’s follow-up, the Galaxy S IV, which, if the trend continues, will dethrone the current flagship. We expect to see the fourth iteration at a special, Unpacked event, in the second quarter of the year.
