Samsung’s new flagship seems to be doing quite well in Europe, with sales hitting six million. Asia trails with 4.5 million and Apple loving Americans snapped up 4 million units. Samsung also did very well in South Korea, with sales hitting 2.5 million units, which is pretty impressive for a country of 50 million.
With such sales figures in mind, paying a billion bucks for a bunch of ripped off icons doesn’t seem like a bad deal.
However, although it’s all been smooth sailing for Sammy so far, the new iPhone is just weeks away and Windows Phone 8 is also just around the corner. Android fundamentalists are waiting for new Nexus devices, which could come in a few flavours this year.
