Samsung Galaxy S III surpasses 40 million in global sales

Samsung Galaxy S III surpasses 40 million in global sales

samsung_galaxy_s_iii_720wHaving eclipsed the 30 million mark in the first 150 days, we expected the Samsung Galaxy S III to continue to sell well over the next few months. Samsung today confirmed that the entire family of Galaxy S handsets has topped the 100 million milestone, with the Galaxy S III accounting for 40 million. Having taken only seven months to hit that figure, the Galaxy S III is far and away the most popular Android smartphone thus far.

Looking ahead, we can imagine the Galaxy S 4 will be quite well received when it debuts later this spring. What’s more, the Galaxy Note family is gaining in popularity as well, having adapted the “one form factor across all major carriers” strategy that the Galaxy S III employed.
