Samsung have announced that their Galaxy S series has achieved over 100 million channel sales since their launch in May 2010. The Korean company announced the incredible milestone via their Flickr stream.
The excellent sales figures were driven by the popular Galaxy S3.
“Samsung Electronics’ flagship Galaxy S series surpassed the accumulated sales record of 100 million units from the supply side in only 2 years and 7 months after its launch in May 2010. Galaxy S III is selling at much faster rate of 30 million in 5 months and 40 million in 7 months, after becoming a million seller in only 50 days after its release last May. Currently, its average daily sales are 190,000 units. The driving force behind Samsung Electronics’ rise to the top on the global smartphone market is Galaxy S II which is gaining ground as a steady seller hitting the sales of over 40 million in only 20 months.”
Samsung hope that they will ship 510 million phones in 2013, which would led to a 20 percent increase over 2012. They also announced their preliminary earnings guidance for Q4 saying that they expected a consolidated profit of around $8.3 billion on sales of approximately $53.6 billion.
Kitguru says: The future is looking very healthy for Samsung.
