The phone launched in 125 markets and is coming to 25 more markets in the upcoming days

The success off the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes as no surprise to us and reports from Korea have detailed how successful the new flagship has been upon launch date. Apparently, when the phone first launched, it managed to set a record for Samsung after generating a huge number of sales and it also crossed the achievement of its predecessor Galaxy S4. Some of the best results have been generated from the European markets where the phone has managed to sell twice more than the Galaxy S4 did when it was launched.

The sales would have continued to grow if there had not been a halt due to the outlets running out of stock. Paris, Amsterdam and London saw one of the most enthusiastic customers where they stood in lines in groups of hundreds in front of the Samsung flagship stores. They waited in long lines. impatient to get their hands on the phone.

Even the launch of the phone was something that was a first for the company; it hit a record 125 markets across borders upon the official launch and this is by far the most extensive launch the Korean manufacturer has ever pulled off. It is now going to hit some other 25 markets as well in a couple of days, totalling the overall launch of 150 markets. The SIM free units have been available at $699 in the US and around 599 in most of Europe and Asia and the phone is available with a number of carriers.
