Samsung’s monthly habit of gloating about its device sales continues today with the Galaxy S III.
Samsung says that it’s sold 20 million Galaxy S III smartphones to retailers since May. Broken down by region, those numbers look like this: 6 million units in Europe, 4.5 million in Asia, and 4 million in North America. (Samsung moved 2.5 million units in South Korea alone, in case you were wondering.)
To which we reply: We get it, Samsung.
Samsung released similar sales figures in July, announcing that it had moved 10 million Galaxy S III’s in two months. The announcement followed the June news that the company had sold 50 million Galaxy S devices. If there’s a pattern here, it’s this: Samsung’s devices sell well. And Samsung has to let everyone know about it.
While the sales numbers announcement probably isn’t all that interesting by itself, it is a big deal for Samsung. With the next iPhone drawing ever closer, Samsung needs proof that the Galaxy S III has staying power. Judging by the device’s sales numbers, Samsung probably doesn’t have much to worry about.
