Samsung Galaxy S3 Reaches 20 Million Units Sold

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has reached 20 million units sold, according to an announcement made by the company.

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 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. The black model has been rumored for quite some time and now it seems that it will finally arrive.

This version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone is rumored to be launching with 64GB of built-in storage.

Clove U.K. reported earlier this month that the device will come equipped with quadruple the storage space that is found in most Galaxy S3 models.

This variant of the device is currently available for pre-order at the U.K. retailer known as MobileFun. It is expected to be shipped in four weeks for those who pre-order the smartphone and will be available at retail locations two weeks after that.
