Samsung has just confirmed that its popular large screen phablet Galaxy Note 3 shipments have surpassed 10 million units in just 2 months. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was launched worldwide on September 25, 2013. Samsung's co-CEO J.K. Shin already predicted before the launch of hybrid Note 3 that Samsung would ship more than 10 million Galaxy Note 3 phablets. And his prediction is now proved true.
Note 3 specs include 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, 3GB RAM, 2.3GHz quad-core processor for LTE version or 1.9 GHz eight-core processor for 3G-only version and a 3,200mAh battery. Galaxy Note 3 is now available in 58 countries but Samsung says that its sales remain very high in China due to the popularity of associated S Pen. Note 3 sales also remain high in Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia and in Europe and North America as well.
Samsung celebrates the "Galaxy Note 3’s recent achievement of selling more than 10 million units" by presenting company's ‘10 million seller club’. Starting from 2002, 17 Samsung mobile devices had surpassed 10 million sales mark. Samsung's 10 million seller club lists all these devices including Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy SII, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 3 and more.
But if we compare the time period taken by all Note devices to reach in 10 million seller club, Note 3 took less time than others. Galaxy Note II took 4 months to surpass the 10 million sales milestone, while the original Galaxy Note took 9 months to hit the same mark. But Note 3 did it in just 2 months (60 days). However, Note 3 cannot break global sales record time of Samsung Galaxy S4. Samsung's flagship S4 surpassed 10 million sales mark in almost a month and a half (50 days).
President & CEO of Samsung Electronics, Sinjonggyun announced "10 million global sales of Galaxy Note 3 and thanks to the support of customers around the world, and the future for the people on the basis of innovation and technology to consumers around the world to provide differentiated value will try more."
