Samsung said today that international sales of its Galaxy S smartphones surpassed 100 million models since the initial model in the series was launched less than 3 years back. Samsung said it has sold over 25 million Galaxy S smartphones, 40 million Galaxy S II smartphones and 41 million Galaxy S III smartphones.
Samsung unveiled the 1st Galaxy S model at the end of May 2010, scrambling to catch up with Apple, which was re-shaping the market with the iPhone. But Samsung was fast to narrow the space with bigger smartphone designers. Research company IHS iSuppli said a few weeks ago that Samsung defeat Nokia in mobile phone sales and Apple in smartphone sales a year ago.
Apple’s iPhone sales hit the 100-million mark in March 2011, almost 4 years after the release of the phone in 2007. Experts are hoping Samsung to announce the 4th edition of the Galaxy S Smartphone before this summer.
