Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 Sells 10 Million Units In Just 2 Months


We may have laughed at the original Galaxy Note for its massive 5.3-inch display when Samsung first announced it back in 2011, but like the flagship Galaxy S series, it’s been a huge success. Now in its third generation, the device has sold over 10 million units in just two months.

That makes the Galaxy Note 3 the most successful Galaxy Note device so far, with twice as many units sold as the Galaxy Note II over the same period. In fact, it’s not far off the Galaxy S4’s sales record, which reached 10 million units in 50 days following its launch earlier this year.

The Galaxy Note 3 is on sale in 58 countries around the world, but Samsung says it’s particular popular in China, where consumers love its S Pen stylus.

The device also packs a 5.7-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. It was also the first Samsung smartphone to support the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
