Samsung Ships Over 6.5 million Galaxy S III Devices in Three Months

By Mike Carrington on at

Samsung has done pretty well for itself, with the gorgeous Galaxy S III selling like half-price sweets and dishing out around 6.5 million well-designed units to customers over a 3 month period.

Analysts took a peek at some figures and claim that the Korean giant moved a hefty load of the flagship device in the second quarter of this year, from April to June. Of course, the S III was always going to be a big deal, especially with Samsung capitalising on the success of its previous models and eager Android fans hungry to snap up the next big device. Samsung itself also claim that it expects to hit the colossal 10 million sales mark by the end of the month.

Well, if they keep cranking out devices and chucking them to customers at this rate, they very well may exceed that estimate by a great deal. Analysts also estimate that the company will shift another 15 million in the third quarter of 2011 -- but of course rumours of a new iPhone launch may put a dent to those figures.
