Samsung passes 100m milestone in sales of Galaxy S smartphones
Samsung Electronics said global sales of its flagship Galaxy S smartphone line have now surpassed 100m. Of the total, Samsung said the original Galaxy S, released in 2010, has 24 million sales; the S II, released in 2011, has 40 million; and the S III, released in 2012, has also achieved more than 40 million sales. In the past Samsung has indicated that these ‘sales’ figures indicate sell-in to sales channels and not sell-through figures to end users – the company did so again when talking about the S III sales.
Apple’s iPhone reached the 100m nearly four years after the introduction of the first iPhone in 2007. Samsung is widely expected to unveil the Galaxy S IV at the Mobile World Congress trade show next month.
