Samsung Galaxy Note 3 shipments top 10m in two months

Samsung has announced Samsung Galaxy Note 3 shipments have topped 10 million in the two months since launch.

The South Korean electronics giant released an infographic highlighting key mobile phone handsets to make it into its “10 million seller club” since 2002 with the Samsung SGH-T100.

In pride of place for 2013 is the Samsung Galaxy S4 alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the latest handset to reach the 10 million shipments mark.

The Galaxy Note 3, the latest large screen smartphone, has followed in the footsteps of its predecessors the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note with sales success.

However, we have to remember Samsung doesn’t provide actual sales figures, but only channel sales or shipments.

It is still a very good indicator of the Galaxy Note 3’s popularity though, as the original Note took nine months to reach 10 million channel sales, and the Note 2 took four months.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was released on September 25 in the majority of international markets, which means the 5.7-inch, stylus bearing smartphone took a little over two months to reach the 10 million shipment mark.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 at IFA 2013 in early September alongside the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, announcing key improvements over the Note 2.

It has a 5.7-inch Full HD 1080 x 1920p Super AMOLED Display and runs on a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM.

Samsung has also equipped it with a new generation S Pen stylus, which offers better functionality and new features for the Galaxy Note 3.

It has a 13-megapixel camera in the rear, complemented by a 2-megapixel secondary snapper up front.

Powered by a 3,200mAh battery, the Galaxy Note 3 has Bluetooth 4.0 LE, NFC, Infrared, and 4G LTE compatibility.
