Samsung has announced that it has crossed the 2 million units sold threshold for its Galaxy Note smartphone / tablet hybrid in South Korea, the company’s home turf. Back in March, Samsung announced that it had managed to sell 2 million Galaxy Notes worldwide, turning the giant phone / small tablet from a niche offering straight into a mass-market success.
That’s only been further demonstrated by the feat that Samsung has accomplished in South Korea. In just five months, it went from 0 to 2 million Galaxy Notes sold.
Samsung’s also a leader in South Korea in terms of LTE smartphones sold, where its products now account for around 67% of sales. Samsung’s share of the domestic mobile phone market is also quite large, at 66%.
With these recent successes, it’s quite clear that the Galaxy S III that will be officially unveiled tomorrow is going to be Samsung’s next best-selling smartphone in South Korea.
