According to Samsung they have sold 30 million Samsung Galaxy S3 units since its launch. Information came via Samsung Poland’s Facebook page where they confirmed it. A couple of months ago, 20 million sales mark was reached by Galaxy S3. These new numbers have outpaced Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 sales records.
Samsung is catching up fast by integrating latest features in its smartphones and people are actually liking to buy big screen phones now. Even yesterday Samsung outed Galaxy Note II sales stats also which has sold over 2 million units until now.
So now Galaxy S3 is an old thing and people might pick Nexus 4 now instead of Galaxy S3 (personal views). Samsung is now focusing on next big thing and also known as galaxy S IV. So let’s wait and watch what comes out of it.
