Samsung sold 5 million Galaxy Note 3 handsets since launch
Both the original Galaxy Note and the Note II from last year have been successful (with more than 40 million units sold – combined), so expectations regarding the new Galaxy Note 3 are high. And it looks like the device is meeting expectations, at least for the moment.
Launched around the world in September, the Note 3 has been sold in more than 5 million units until now – according to Korean website Hankooki, which quotes Samsung Mobile CEO JK Shin.
Currently running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Note 3 will be updated to the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat. Unfortunately, there’s no official word on when this will happen. But let’s hope the update will be ready before the end of the year.
A cheaper version of the Note 3 might be introduced sometime in November. We’ll let you know when (and if) it happens.
Samsung’s other flagship Android smartphone for this year, the Galaxy S4, is also a success – more than 40 million units have been shipped since April.
