Samsung to ship 10 million Galaxy S III phones by July

Things are looking good for Samsung and its newest flagship device, the Galaxy S III. According to JK Shin, Samsung’s head of telecommunications, Samsung is expected to ship over 10 million Galaxy S III phones by July of this year. The phone has been available in Europe and the Middle East since late May. It recently debut in North America on T-Mobile and Sprint and is expected to launch on Verizon Wireless and AT&T soon.

The Galaxy S III features a large 4.8-inch HD display, 16 or 32Gb of internal storage, 1GB of RAM (the U.S. models all feature 2GB of RAM), a quad-core Samsung Exynos Processor (the U.S. variants feature a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4), and more.

Considering that over 9 million people pre-ordered the phone, I’m surprised that the phone will reach the 10 million mark in July. Either way, it’s an impressive achievement for Samsung. It will quickly become its fastest and best-selling phone.

In comparison, its predecessors, the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II, sold over 50 million units in a little over 2 years.
