Samsung can’t keep up with demand for its new Galaxy S III, but that’s good news for the company. According to Reuters, JK Shin, President of Samsung Mobile Communications, said that they expect sales of the S III to hit 10 million units in July.
The news comes about a month after the company mentioned that S III pre-orders had reached 9 million units.
Today, Samsung has also announced the launch of the Galaxy S III in its home country, South Korea. All Korean carriers will sell the handset. The 3G version should be available as of now, while the LTE one will be out next month.
As a reminder, the first Galaxy S (launched in 2010) has been sold in more than 24 million units. The Galaxy S II (introduced in 2011) is even more successful: over 28 million were shipped. The S III has considerable chances to top that, especially since Apple’s new iPhone will not be out until fall.
