Samsung Galaxy S III sales surpass 20 million units in 100 days


Samsung’s Galaxy S III is popular and probably very profitable. The flagship Android has blown right past any previous sales records they recorded. At last count, in August, just after two months of sales and 50 days on the market the Galaxy S III hit 10 million units sold. Now with 100 days under their belt Samsung has proudly announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III has surpassed the 20 million global sales milestone – which represents approximately 200,000 per day.

The Galaxy S III is widely available in Canada via every possible carrier (Rogers, Bell, TELUS, WIND, Mobilicity, SaskTel, Videotron and Virgin). As for specific country numbers, Samsung states that GS III sales in Europe lead the way with 6 million units, followed by Asia with 4.5 million, then North America with 4 million (no word on Canadian stats), and South Korea hit 2.5 million units sold.

    Guess Samsung cut back on the models budget .

    • Al

      The SG3 although not perfect, is selling very well, 100 days later and they are barely meeting demand! there are still many countries that are waiting for the phone so expect the same or higher rate of sales until November, where the iphone5 will start to be widely available. Wonder if after 30 or 40 million copies Samsung will compete with price to make it more competitive against the iphone 5 ( at that time the shoudl have recovered the R&D investment ) and selling it at $450-$500 would sell another 20 million!!

      Let’s wait and see!
      Can’t wait for the SG3 to come at Vrigin /Koodo!!

      Well, now, those are some ugly models. Should have just showed the phones rather than the chinese models.

    • Some Guy

      @Ugly Models, your comment was amusing, not because of the cleverness that you apparently think you possess, but rather the evident ignorance which appears when you claimed Korean women as “Chinese models”.

    Testament that even if Apple tries to bully them, they won’t take sh!t and they hit back, by taking money from Apple.

    Apple is paid $1,000,000,000+ by Samsung.
    Hundreds of thouands of iPhone and iPad users switch to Samsung Devices, taking money from Apple and giving it to Samsung who then, pays it back to Apple. haha. Wait, not so funny.

  • 6billiondollarman

    Phone selection in the fall is going to be craaaaaaaaaazy, smart on Samsung to come out when they did, gave them a good advantage.

  • WTF fantards

    Wow, even their models are fugly.

    • jonny

      LOL

      Those are obviously not models. They are average sales people. Modles wouldnt be wearing name tags. And they are fairly good looking (except one) for average people. Some could use a different hair style tho.

  • Shamu

    It is a nice device however my sights are on Note II. Hey Sammy, it would be nice to have official confirmation that Note II is coming to Canada this fall. Please confirm soon. Customers are already beginning to ask

  • Keith

  • Pahech
