Samsung Galaxy S Hits 9.3 Million Units Sold

Posted on Dec 25 2010 - 11:54pm by Richard Sharp

Samsung revealed that they had sold 5 million of their Galaxy S Smartphones a couple of months ago, at the time they also revealed that they would sell 10 million units before the end of 2010 – a bold prediction at the time but one they seem to be able to back up.

Samsung has announced that they have sold 9.3 million units to date and with only a few days to go before the end of the year, making it unlikely but still possible to hit their target.

The Samsung Galaxy S launched in July and has been one of the most popular handsets for Samsung, not bad when you consider they have had a plethora of phones this year including phones running Windows Phone 7 and Bada (Samsung’s own OS).

The Galaxy S started life running Android 2.1 which has since been upgraded to Android 2.2 (Froyo), the handset boasts a 1GHz processor, 4 inch super-Amoled screen and a five megapixel snapper. There is no news yet on when the device will receive the latest 2.3, Gingerbread update but if it lands soon could help Samsung boost sales further.

Have you or anyone you know bought a Samsung Galaxy S? Are you/they happy with it?

    I have the Fascinate/Verizon version. I am very happy with it, but I am getting Very annoyed with the wait on the upgrade to Froyo 2.2, the Nexus 2 is out and running 2.3 yet we are still on 2.1 and it's 99% the same phone.
