Samsung Galaxy S sales hit 9.3 million units

Written by Fudzilla staff


About to meet 10 million forecast
Samsung introduced its flagship Galaxy S handset some six months ago and despite the fact that the phone was universally praised by reviewers, many punters were skeptical about the outfit's plans to shift 10 million units by the end of the year.

However, Samsung claims that it has already managed to sell 9.3 million units, so it might meet its 10 million target spot on. The Galaxy S outsold the iPhone 4 in Korea and it has done rather quite nicely in the US and EU markets as well.

Although it closely resembles the iPhone 3GS in terms of design, the slightly slimmer Galaxy S is a much more advanced design, with a 1GHz processor, 4-inch 800x480 screen and 5MP camera with 720p support. Its only downside is the lack of Android 2.2 support, as the handset still ships with 2.1.

Samsung believes it will ship about 40 million smartphones in 2011 and this impressive figure now sounds rather realistic.

9.3 million units sold. 9.2 million users are having problems with KIES! YAY!

As for the official 2.2, yeah, any time now would be nice dear Samsung.

Still, great phone overall. No real complaints here.

How have you not got 2.2? I just updated from 2.2 (JP6) to 2.2.1 (JPX) which is available for devices with the product code XEU

Even though they are all galaxy s phones, they all use different firmware. Only the i9000 variant of galaxy s has received an official 2.2 update. I am still waiting on 2.2 for my captivate.

Goes to show that if you have a good name, you can turn out an overpriced piece of junk and people will still buy it.

I tried one of these at the Sprint Store. Seriously, it was awful.

People who have waited on the dual core models will be rewarded.

Your opinion, I own a Captivate and it's the best android phone I've ever owned. That's kind of why they make so many different smartphones, cause we don't all like the same thing.

I think that sentence only applied to the fruit company. Android user mostly know how to stay away from crap when they see one. The other guy? I dunno, they seem to buy everything crap or not.
