Anyone interested in purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S3 for Verizon can do so on Amazon.com for a discounted price.
The online retailer is offering the smartphone for $139, which is $60 cheaper than its normal price with a new 2-year agreement or upgrade.
This new deal is available to Verizon customers looking to upgrade to the phone. Other customers looking to sign a new 2-year contract will have to pay an extra $10. Either way, this is still a deal that saves Verizon customers at least $50 on what has been one of the most popular smartphones to be released this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 recently reached 20 million units sold, according to an announcement made by Samsung.
This is quite an impressive number showing that almost 200,000 Galaxy S3s are sold each day and that the new model is selling three times faster than the Galaxy S2. Its predecessor took around 10 months to reach that 20 million mark.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 launched back in July and Samsung's mobile division head, JK Shin, said he expected to sell 10 million units in the first month alone.
Samsung broke down the sales of the Galaxy S3 by region. In North America the company moved 4 million units, sold 6 million in Europe, 4.5 million in Asia and 2.5 million in Korea. The device has almost completely caught up to the Galaxy S2, which has sold 28 million units to date.
The Galaxy S3 will also be released in three new colors, according to announcement made by the Samsung.
The smartphone will also be available in Titanium Grey, Sapphire Black, and Amber Brown in the near future.
The colors are subject to carrier availability, so customers will not be guaranteed to see all of them on their carrier of choice right away.
