DHAKA: South Korea’s Samsung Electronics, the world’s largest smartphone maker, said on Monday it expects to have sold 10 million of its newest Galaxy S3 model by the end of July, two months after its launch.
JK Shin, head of the mobile communications division, said robust sales of the model would help Samsung’s mobile business post a second-quarter profit bigger than the first three months.
‘We’re getting more positive reviews for Galaxy S3 than the previous Galaxy S1 and S2 since the release in Europe, the Middle East and South-east Asia beginning May 29’, Shin said at an event to mark the phone’s domestic release on Monday.
He estimated that global sales of the new phone - currently available in 147 countries - would surpass 10 million next month, including about a million to be sold at home, reports The Straits Times.
