Samsung’s latest flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 3, is officially a member of what the company calls it’s 10 Million Seller Club. That’s right, despite the phablet’s awkward sizing, it’s proving to be just as popular, and then some, as smaller phones. Samsung made the announcement on the their Samsung Tomorrow blog.
On the English version of the blog, there was also an infographic showing all of the Samsung phones that have hit that magical 8-figure sales number. In addition to a few dumb phones and early Android phones, all of the flagship Galaxy phones are on the list. There’s the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy Note 3.
With the large phones selling so well, it’s hard to deny that customers are up to buying ever-larger smartphones. It’s still difficult, however, to say whether fans prefer the better specs that the phones offer, the bigger screens, or a combination of the two. We haven’t seen crazy sales of either Samsung’s Mega line of smartphones, indicating that it isn’t simply the huge screens that people favor.
Sony’s upcoming Z1s/Z1 Mini may be one of the first to offer a flagship, quad-core Snapdragon CPU with a phone that can still be operating with just one hand.
By comparison, we don’t know just how many iPhone 5s handsets have sold, though it’s been indicated that the phone is selling faster than its predecessor did last year. Rumors did point at Foxconn as making 500,000 iPhone 5s smartphones each day in order to keep up with demand.
