Apple and Samsung have now been locked in a legal battle for several months, as Apple has claimed that the South Korean manufacturer has committed copyright infringements on some of its smartphone and tablet products.
Despite this, Samsung is currently reaping the benefits of its wildly popular Galaxy S3. This is the manufacturers 2012 flagship Android smartphone, and the company recently announced the it has broken sales records, clocking up an impressive 20,000,000 sales in its first 100 days are the market. The popularity of this device follows firmly in the footsteps of its predecessors the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S2.
The Galaxy S2 for example sold 5 million handsets in its first 85 days and went on to hit the 10 million sales mark after being on the market for 5 months. At the time, this news was just as exciting, and goes to show how much more popular the Galaxy S3 actually is.
The South Korean technology giant was recently ordered to pay over one billion dollars to Apple as a result of the legal battle between the two firms, but despite this setback it looks like business as usual for Samsung. As prolific as ever, it is recently announced that it will soon be launching a follow up device to its unique and popular Galaxy Note, called Galaxy Note 2. It is widely anticipated and expected that this device will be every bit as popular as the original Galaxy Note.
Fresh interest in the Galaxy S3 is likely to be produced thanks to a number of new colour variants hitting the market shortly as well as and over the air update to the new Android Jellybean operating system. Therefore, don’t expect sales of the device to slow down any time soon.
Of course, the Apple iPhone 5 which is due to be released this week is likely to prove worthy competition for the device, and it will certainly be interesting to see how these two phones fare against one another.
