Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone is expected to prove a highly popular device right from the start, the latest reports on the matter suggest.Apparently, the handset vendor has already received pre-orders for more than 10 million Galaxy S III units from its partners, which sounds more than impressive for a yet unannounced phone.
In comparison, Samsung managed to ship a number of 5 million Galaxy Note units in only five months after the phone’s official launch.
Of course, the large screen that this handset sports makes it fit only for a reduced number of users, something that won’t happen with Galaxy S III.
Not to mention that the forthcoming device will build on the impressive success that the Galaxy S II smartphone has already seen.
Samsung’s next Android-based flagship phone will help the company top the 40 million smartphones shipped in the first quarter of the year, a recent article on UnwiredView explains.
Both Galaxy S II and Galaxy S are still selling well, and, helped by other devices from the company, should help Samsung reach 40 million sold smartphones in Q2 quite easily.
To that, we should add the said 10 million of already pre-ordered Galaxy S III units, which should be launched in the second quarter of the year.
The total number of Samsung smartphones sold in the next three months could rise to over 50 million, UnwiredView suggests.
Samsung already managed to take the top spot on the smartphone market, and it might grow even more if these sales figures pan out. By the looks of it, things will indeed turn up this way, all in Samsung’s favor.
Of course, it still remains to be seen what exactly Samsung will have to offer with the new Galaxy S III. The phone was already said to pack state-of-the-art hardware and capabilities, but nothing has been officially confirmed for the time being.
