Samsung’s flagship devices, the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II have high expectations. The GS III just reached 20 million in sales – a milestone they quickly achieved in 100 days. The Note II, a follow-up phablet to the Note, was just announced last week at IFA last week and will be officially launched in Europe this October, then rolling out to other countries in the following weeks, including Canada.
Speaking with reporters in Korea, Samsung Mobile head J.K. Shin stated that “The Galaxy S3 is expected to sell more than 30 million units within this year,” and that the Note II “sales may grow more than two-fold (compared with the previous model).” The Note has notched up sales of 10 million, which means that the Note II – a 5.5-inch Jelly Bean Android device is pegged to sell 20 million units by the end of the year.
