OOh..! La La..!!
Guess Samsung have a saviour here which is going to make up for the dud performance of the Galaxy S4. Now that the Galaxy S4 has passed 40 million sales and demand is weakening. According to Korean publication Hankooki (quoting the president of Samsung Mobile), the Note 3 phablet is off to a good start, having sold 5 million units in one month.
Just for a wild comparison.
the original Galaxy Note took 5 months to just ship 5 million units (not the same as sales). Of course, that was quite an achievement, too, given that back then phablets were an unproven concept.
The successor, the Galaxy Note II, sold 3 million units in its first month of availability and took another month to make it to the 5 million mark. Combined, Note and Note II have sold over 38 million units to date.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 sold 10 million units in the first month, which makes the Note 3’s sale numbers all the more impressive – the S4 has a much wider target audience as phablets are still somewhat of a niche
