Samsung has sold 50m Galaxy S IIIs and IIs, still going strong
Samsung has sold one heck of a lot of smartphones, the South Korean phone maker just announced it’s flogged an impressive 50 million units over the past two years.
This comes as Samsung overtook Apple in the smartphone sales wars (according to Reuters) in the second quarter of this year. To put that in perspective, Apple (only) sold 30.5 million smartphones, versus Samsung‘s 50 million. Of course, Samsung sells many more mobiles than Apple‘s one-per-year. And considering this is counting the recently-launched Galaxy S III, while Apple has yet to announce its new Apple iPhone 5, these numbers might not be entirely accurate (we’ll have to wait until the end of the financial year, for that).
