Even though all the talk right now is over the just-released Galaxy S3 and how it’s going to change all our lives for the better forever, Samsung‘s other major handsets are continuing to sell very well.
Samsung’s latest figures show that the old-but-not-forgotten Galaxy S has sold 24 million units, while 28 million people are now proud owners of the still-strong S II. Meanwhile, Samsung’s first ‘phablet’ (such a lovely word, isn’t it?), the Galaxy Note, has shifted over 7 million times, with its rate of sales cruising along at a good rate.
Samsung continues to face strong competition from rivals, but while it seems that the likes of Sony, Blackberry and Nokia are waning in the ongoing smartphone war, the Korean electronics giant is looking better than ever.
Samsung have recently taken over from Nokia as the world’s best-selling handset manufacturer, and along with HTC they control 90% of the UK’s Android market. And all this was before the Galaxy S3 came out to quickly become the best-selling phone of 2012.
It’s all coming up roses for Samsung. Safe to say that they’ll continue dominating the market until a certain fruit-branded smartphone comes along later in the year.
