10 Million Samsung Galaxy Note Units Shipped Globally

Samsung Galaxy Note needs no introduction! It is the company’s first phone/tablet hybrid device. This handset was unveiled and showcased last year at the IFA 2011. Soon after the introduction, Galaxy Note was released in majority of the European and Asian markets. The initial sales of the device was below the expectations. Samsung managed to sell only 1 million units in the first two months.

Earlier this year, Samsung announced the availability of Galaxy Note LTE in the US at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 in Las Vegas. This handset was exclusively available for the AT&T subscribers in the US. The sales of this device was increased considerably after its introduction in the United States.

Within a few days of its launch in the US, Samsung sold 2 million units of this device globally. Samsung Galaxy Note was not only selling like hot cakes in the US, but it was also one of the best selling Android devices in most of the European and Asian countries including South Korea, France, Germany, Taiwan and Hong Kong. In just 5 months, Samsung sold 5 million units globally.

Earlier this month, Samsung Galaxy Note was released for the T-Mobile subscribers in the US. Today, Samsung has reached another milestone. Samsung recently announced that the company has managed to sell 10 million units of the Galaxy Note. You heard this right! It took nearly 8 months for the company to achieve this milestone. Samsung was expecting the device to hit the 10 million mark before the end of this year. However, the milestone has been achieved 5 months before the end of 2012.

Samsung is planning to unveil the successor of this phablet at the IFA 2012 event in Berlin. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is expected to come with a larger 5.5 inch display, powerful quad-core processor and the newer Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. Do you think the original Galaxy Note will cross the 15 million mark before the end of this year? Or the sales will decrease due to the launch of Galaxy Note 2?

While the beautiful and HUGE 5.3-inch HD Super-AMOLED display with a mind-boggling 1280×800 resolution is intact, the 2 capactive,  1 hardware key combo has been replaced by 4 capactive keys.

Internally, the difference between the European Note and the AT&T version is quite huge though. The AT&T version packs in a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, an Adreno 220 GPU and 1GB of RAM. All other usual features like accelerometer, gyroscope and connectivity features like Wi-Fi, GPS etc. are also present. The Note will also support’s AT&T’s new and blazing fast 4G LTE network.
