Samsung Sells 38 Million Galaxy Note Devices

The first Samsung Galaxy Note was launched back in 2011. Its unusual display size lead many to believe that it might perform well, but the device has actually crafted a niche of its own. Just last week the company unveiled Galaxy Note 3, its third phablet, with a host of new improvements and features. At a press conference, Samsung co-CEO JK Shin revealed that the company has sold 38 million units of the Galaxy Note 1 and Galaxy Note 2 around the world.

He predicted that they’ll be able to sell over 10 million units of the new phablet. Shin also said that the company believes Galaxy Note 3 will outdo all of its predecessors. Shin also defended the $299 price tag of Galaxy Gear, its much rumored smartwatch. The device was unveiled alongside Galaxy Note 3 on September 4th. Shin says that the price is appropriate, adding that “it provides a lot of functions.” Both devices will be released in the U.S. over the coming weeks. The Galaxy Note 3 has a full HD 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz processor with 3GB of RAM and USB 3.0. The company says that it is the first smartphone to ship with Android 4.3 pre-installed. Most major U.S. carriers have already revealed their Galaxy Note 3 release dates.
