As you may already know, yesterday Samsung launched an LTE version of the Galaxy S III in its home country, South Korea. Unlike the LTE-capable S III that’s been released in the US and Canada, the Korean one comes with a quad-core processor (Samsung’s own Exynos).
The S III LTE has reached record sales in its first day of availability in Korea, Samsung has revealed. It was sold in 50,000 units – via all three Korean carriers. That’s a lot compared to the first day sales of the previous Galaxy models: 10,000 units (Galaxy S), and 24,000 units (Galaxy S II).
Samsung hopes to sell more than 10 million Galaxy S III handsets around the world before the end of July. And it will most probably do it.
