Samsung Electronics says its Galaxy SIII smartphone has sold more than 30 million units since its launch in May. That’s around three times more than its predecessor, the Galaxy SII, managed during a similar period.
J K Shin, president and head of Samsung’s IT & Mobile Communications division, said “The Galaxy S III continues to be a runaway favourite with customers around the world. Meeting this sales milestone in five months sets another record for Samsung, and we are extremely proud yet motivated to continue to provide our customers with products that they love. On behalf of Samsung Mobile, I appreciate millions of customers around the world that have chosen the Samsung Galaxy S III.”
The Samsung Galaxy SIII, which uses the Android operating system, was recently made available in a new range of colours: Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black and Titanium Grey.
