Galaxy Note 2 Sells 5 Million Units in 60 Days

Samsung is reporting that it has sold 5 million Galaxy Note 2 units in just 60 days.

This makes for another record-breaking release for the company who enjoyed much success with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 earlier on in the year.

The Galaxy Note 2 launched only 2 months ago and has already moved 5 million units worldwide.

The device features a 5.5-inch HD display and Android 4.1.1, JellyBean.

Samsung released an earlier report that stated that it sold around 3 million Galaxy Note 2 units just one month after its launch.

Before the official launch of the Galaxy Note 2, J.K. Shin, the head of Samsung's Mobile Unit, predicted that the device would sell 20 million units after just one year. With this news of 5 million sold in just two months, the company is on pace to exceed that prediction and blow past the sales of the original model.

This will also put Samsung in a place where it could beat out Apple in the smartphone sales department.

The Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.1.1, JellyBean update will roll out with Premium Suite.

Samsung made the announcement last week.

Premium Suite will bring more functionality to JellyBean with better support for Apps running in Dual Window mode side by side. The S Pen will now be able to be used to preview appointments with a new app known as S Planner. It can also be used to videos in the gallery without having to open them.

New features will also be added to S Note and Easy Clip functionality. Samsung released a demo video where the new software can be seen running on the tablet device.
