The Apple iPhone has sold well over 250 million units since June 2007 and today we have heard from Samsung in relation to their total units sold for the GALAXY S III, S II, and original S model. Samsung mentioned in a press statement that the three generations moved past 100 million unit sales yesterday.
This is an amazing achievement considering it has been reached within 3 years, which started with the GALAXY S going on sale in June 2010 and totaling over 24 million sales. Samsung’s GALAXY S II increased on this success with more than 40 million units shipping.
Samsung’s most successful smartphone to date is the GALAXY S III, which has sold more than 40 million units at the time of writing. It will be interesting to see what can be achieved with the GALAXY S IV that is expected to release around May this year, and if this handset could top the S III sales considering a rapidly changing marketplace and move towards popularity with phablets.
It is worth noting that the average daily sales for the GALAXY S III are just fewer than 200,000 units. Some people will be wondering if Samsung GALAXY S smartphones could one day pass the iPhone in total sales, even with a late start?
The above image is thanks to Samsung.
