Samsung’s mega-popular Galaxy S smartphone range has hit another massive milestone, with the line now able to boast over 100 million sales to date.
According to Samsung, there have now been over 40 million Samsung Galaxy S3 sales, with the smartphone seeing a steep spike in sales over the Christmas period since last hearing of 30 million sales back in November.
That total now puts the Galaxy S3 tied with the lifetime sales total of the Galaxy S2 handset, and with sales still going strong its now on course to become Samsung’s most successful smartphone ever. In fact, the S3 sold twice as fast as the Galaxy S2 did during its first five months in stores.
Jumping back to the first Galaxy S handset, it’s proved a successful mobile in its own right, having now hit 24 million units sold since its release back in June 2010.
The numbers prove that the Galaxy S brand is now one of the most recogniseable on the market, which bodes well for future sales of the rumoured Galaxy S4 handset. Just last week at CES we heard more evidence to suggest that the phone may be packing a mighty eight-core processor when revealed later this year.
