Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (005930) Has Sold Over 40M Galaxy Notes

Posted Sep 30, 2013

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has sold over 40 million Galaxy Note devices over the past two years.  Of the 40 million Galaxy Notes sold, around 30 million was the Note II.

Samsung sold around 2 million Note devices in two weeks alone.  Samsung critics believed that the 5.5-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid would not do well on the market.  Nokia and HTC launched larger smartphones after Samsung did.

The Note II sold around 5 million units in about two months after launching in September 2012.  Samsung launched the Note III (pictured above) last week.
