5 million Samsung Galaxy Note II units already sold
Samsung has already sold 5 million Galaxy Note II phablets. This milestone was achieved in just two months.
The Galaxy Note II broke the 3 million sales barrier 37 days after its release. And here we are, less than a month later, witnessing 2 million more of Samsung’s phablets being shipped.
The original Galaxy Note from last year needed no less than five months to reach the 5 million milestone. So its successor’s sales are progressing at a rate that’s more than twice as big. That’s certainly excellent news for Samsung. And the remarkable performance of the Galaxy Note II will probably help the Korean company achieve more than 60 million smartphone sales this quarter.
Analysts predicted that Samsung would move 7 million Galaxy Note IIs during this quarter, and that remains entirely possible. There’s still a bit more than a month to go, and the holiday shopping season is just getting into gear. Who knows – at this rate, Samsung may even jump well past that 7 million milestone by the end of the year.
The company reports that sales of its phablet are basically strong in all markets. There isn’t one particular region driving the record numbers. Rather, it’s doing well in South Korea, China, the rest of Asia, Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, and even Africa.
