Samsung Galaxy S surpasses 100m sales

Samsung has announced that global channel sales of the company’s flagship smartphone, Galaxy S III and its two predecessors Galaxy S and Galaxy S II have surpassed 100 million units sales.

Reaching over 24 million global channel shipments, Samsung says the Galaxy S achieved 10 million of these during the first seven months after its launch in June 2010.

Building on this success, Samsung launched the Galaxy S II in April 2011, shifting around 40 million shipments which included 10 million global channel sales in five months.

In May 2012, Samsung unveiled the GALAXY S III, a rival to Apple's impending iPhone 5 release, which achieved 20 million global channel sales in 100 days, making it the company's fastest selling smartphone yet.

The smartphone has now passed the mark of 40 million unit channel sales.
