Samsung announced in its corporate Korean blog that the company has shipped 10 million Galaxy Note 3 smartphones globally and this is the record against any Galaxy Note devices till date.
Last month, Samsung revealed in the same blog that it has surpassed shipping of 5 million Galaxy Note 3 and it took around only 1 more month to pass the 10 million mark. First version of Galaxy Note took 9 months to surpass this shipping number, where the Note 2 overtaken it in 4 months after the availability. We are speaking about the shipping numbers, while the sales numbers would be slightly lower than this number. You should also know that Samsung Galaxy S4 has taken merely a month to achieve the 10 million shipping numbers.
On September 25, the Note 3 was launched in 58 countries along with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, but the wearable computing unit wasn’t even managed to sell more than 50,000 units as of early-November. But the company has said that the large-screen multitasking, faster processing and faster LTE support along with the convenience of text input via S Pen lead to the success of the device.
When launched, many analysts worldwide criticized the large screen phablet, but it looks like people are interested in the large screen smartphones. Following Samsung, LG revealed their 6-inch G Flex curved phablet, while Apple is also said to be working on large screen phablets. But, what we are waiting for is – the release of rumored Galaxy S5 smartphone, which can (as per rumors) possibly come with a Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB RAM, 16MP camera, full metal body and a gigantic 4,000mAh battery.
