Samsung Galaxy S3 sold in over 30 million copies

Reading time is around minutes.

In May of this year Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S III smartphone, which has so far sold 30 million copies! By comparison, during the same period in 2011, the previous model Galaxy S II sold over ten million copies. Obviously it's no coincidence that many techies and common users like to give it the title of the best smartphone available.

JK Shin, president and head of IT & Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics said “The GALAXY S3 continues to be a runaway favorite with customers around the world. Meeting this sales milestone in five months sets another record for Samsung and we are extremely proud and yet motivated to continue to provide our customers with products that they love. On behalf of Samsung Mobile, I appreciate the millions of customers around the world that have chosen the Samsung GALAXY S3”.

The same statement also mentioned the possibility of upgrading the Galaxy S III to Android OS 4.1 (Jelly Bean), which although certainly welcome still depends on the local mobile carriers. According to the information on this page,  4.1.1 is available several countries where owners still complain that they are unable to download it. Hopefully for them this will be solved in near future. As far as Apple is concerned, they announced sales of 26.9 million iPhones in the same three month period, but they didn’t mention how many of those devices were the iPhone 5 so it's hard to say who is ahead, but we give a slight advantage to Samsung.
