Nope, I’m not talking about the different variants based on different carriers in the US, but I’m actually talking about the variety models of Samsung GALAXY S3 that were released worldwide, such as: Korea, Japan, US, Canada and the International version, which each of them comes with some different hardware (RAM and CPU).
Well, apparently, those aforementioned models above are not the last models that Samsung has been preparing in its secret lab, because the other new variant of the
Samsung GALAXY S3 with Exynos quad-core processor and LTE connectivity combo, is heading to Germany.
This Germany model of Samsung GALAXY S3is said will be priced higher by Samsung because having those 2 prominent hardware in this handset is just too good to be true, although it already happened earlier to the customers in the Korea, who also got the similar kind of model just like the owners in Germany will be getting.
Anyway, Samsung will ask you to pay EUR 740 or equal to $940 US if you want to own this SIM-free model. So if you live in Germany and haven’t had the chance to get the “quad-core+LTE” model of Samsung GALAXY S3, then you better prepare the budget before this handset finally arrives in Germany in October.
More than 10 million of Samsung GALAXY S3 units have been sold, Confirmed by Samsung Executive
If you are a really huge fans or enthusiast of
Samsung GALAXY S3phone and have been following all the reports regarding this device, then you might feel a pretty bored to hear the latest news that I’m about to inform to you in this article. But what the heck!! Since we all love this phone and especially since this is a good news, then why don’t we just bring it to the table, right? Okay then.
Recently, another report concerning the sales number of “The Next Galaxy” phone just arrived once again. This time, it came from Samsung’s executive named Shin Jong-Kyun, who said that
Samsung GALAXY S3 has been sold around 10 million units all around the world.
Actually, this report comes not so surprising since we all have been informed earlier before that Samsung GALAXY S3 already surpassed over 9 million preorders worldwide, and this number doesn’t include the US market, which could be tremendously even bigger.
And some days ago, we also knew that the analyst from J.P Morgan just confirmed earlier that “The Next Galaxy” phone had been sold around 6.5 million units in the second quarter alone. Not to mention, the analyst also pointed out that Samsung would be selling more 15 million units in the third quarter for this year.
Anyway, Samsung’s head of mobile, J.K Shin also reiterated that the accumulated sales of the Samsung GALAXY S3 had exceeded more than 10 million units sold. However, it wasn’t clear whether the “10 million” number that being reported by Samsung was the number of units sold to retailers or end users.
But still, the number is really staggering and deserves some respect since the phone has just been launched 2 months ago worldwide (and 1 month ago in the US). J.K Shin also said that the company expected to sell more 20 million units by this fall.
So good job, Samsung!
Samsung Might Cancel the Production of the 64GB Model of Samsung GALAXY S III Due to Lack Demands
There is no doubt that Samsung GALAXY S iii is one of the most popular handsets in 2012, I also believe it’s even the best smartphone for this year. It’s proved by how this phone has managed to reach almost 9 million preorders all across the world. And amazingly, that number doesn’t include the US smartphone market, which in turn, could be so much bigger than that for sure. However, if the success story above happens on both 16GB and 32GB variants of this phone, then the story will be totally different with what just happened with the
64GB model of Samsung GALAXY S III.
Yeah, according to multiple reports, Samsung’s plan to roll out the
64GB model of Samsung GALAXY S III apparently has to be cancelled by this Korean phone manufacturerdue to lack of demands in the market. The report actually came from an Expansys customer in U.K that just received a message saying that Samsung has decided to cancel the production of the 64GB variant of “The Next Galaxy” phone.
Interestingly, this news doesn’t come so surprising because as we all already know, Samsung GALAXY S III already comes with a microSD card slot in the first place. So, either you pick up the 16GB or the 32GB model doesn’t really matter that much because you can always expand the storage of the device for up to 64GB. So, having a 64GB model of Samsung GALAXY S III, plus an extra 64GB microSD card, which makes it 123GB in total, seems way too huge for just a smartphone device.
Weirdly, there are actually some third party retailers overseas that still accept the preorders for the 64GB model of Samsung GALAXY S III, although this model will likely be removed from their listing anytime soon due to the cancellation from the manufacturer itself.
So, if you’re one of many people that are lucky enough to find the 64GB variant of GALAXY S III on some online retailers, just don’t get your hopes too high because they will likely remove the model from the listing as soon as possible.
