During the past several days we’ve discussed quite a lot about the financial part of the smartphone market, and we’ve found out that Samsung is currently the leading smartphone manufacturer in the world, with no less than 88.4 million smartphones sold in Q3 2013 alone. We’ve also learned that the company has managed to sell more than 40 million Galaxy S4 units since the handset’s release, and that Samsung is the second largest R&D Spender of the year, following Volkswagen.
In other words, the Korean giant is doing pretty well right now, and it certainly appears that the company is doing better and better with each new smartphone it releases. Which brings us to the Galaxy Note 3. In case you’re wondering how the latest phablet is doing, then we have the answer. More details below.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Sales Figures
According to the JK Shin, Samsung Mobile’s President and CEO, Samsung has managed to sell 5 million Galaxy Note 3 units in just one month. In contrast, LG hopes that it will manage to sell 3 million LG G2s by the end of the year.
As with the Galaxy S series, the Note line-up is doing better with each new release. The original Galaxy Note has reached the 5 million mark in over five months, and it took a little over two months for the Note 2 to exceed this figure.
As yet, Samsung managed to sell over 40 million Note and Note 2 units worldwide, with the original model representing one quarter of this figure. In other words, the Note 3 has managed to reach half the total sales of the OG Note (since 2011) in only one month.
Quite impressive to say the least, and it sure seems like Samsung is slowly but surely taking over the mobile world. We’re already curious to see what next year holds for the Korean manufacturer, and for us, the consumers.
