Samsung Galaxy Note II Tops 5 Million in Sales


Samsung is celebrating worldwide sales of more than 5 million Galaxy Note II devices just two months after its release.

The electronics giant announced the milestone in atranslated news release less than 30 days after the South Korean company reported selling 3 million of the super-sized smartphones.

A Samsung spokeswoman confirmed in an email that the Galaxy Note II has surpassed 5 million in sales since its debut in late September, adding that the original Galaxy Note took about five months to reach 5 million in global sales.

The Note II is now on sale in all regions, the release said, including Asia, Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, and Africa. The device, which boasts a 5.5-inch, 1,280-by-720-pixel display is available on all major U.S. carriers — Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular, and runs on Google’s Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system. For $299, customers also snag a 1.6-GHz, quad-core Exynos processor, optimized for LTE networks, as well as 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, plus a microSD card for expandable storage up to 64GB.

Samsung’s oversized phone/tablet is still lagging behind Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III, which was confirmed earlier this month to have sold more than 30 million devices in five months. The device swept the smartphone market in the third quarter alone, besting the iPhone 4S with 18 million Galaxy S III shipments — 11 percent of the smartphone market.

The smartphone maker may have another trick up its sleeve, with rumors of a Galaxy S IV device making the rounds last week. Samsung might provide a first look at the phone during January’s CES or February’s Mobile World Congress. A Korean newspaper reported that the new phone will feature a high-definition, 4.99-inch screen with a 1,920-by-1,080-pixel display — a jump in the pixels-per-inch from the S III.  (Source)
