The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was released about a month ago and given the Galaxy Note series’ popularity, it does not come as a surprise to find out that the Galaxy Note 3 has done pretty well for itself. According to a statement made by Samsung’s CEO, JK Shin, he has confirmed to a Korean media outlet that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has managed to sell 5 million units worldwide in a month since its release. To put this into perspective, the original Galaxy Note took about 5 months to hit that mark, while the Galaxy Note 2 took 2 months to reach the 5 million milestone, so we have to wonder with the Galaxy Note 4 (assuming there is one), could it take Samsung weeks to move that many units?
The Galaxy Note 3 was released last month and we definitely like what we saw (you can check out our comprehensive review). The original Samsung Galaxy Note was announced back in IFA 2011 and many thought the idea of a smartphone with a 5.3” display was a bit ridiculous. Many had initially thought of the device as a novelty and that the trend would eventually phase out, but surprisingly it stuck and many manufacturers have since released smartphones with displays just as big, if not bigger, like Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra which borders on ridiculous with a 6.4” display, making it the biggest phablet in the market at the moment.
