Samsung Galaxy III “KILLS” The Iphone 4s
Ring every bell in every tower: The beast is slain! For the first time since Apple‘s iPhone 4S debuted in October 2011, the phone has been dethroned as the number one selling smartphone in the United States. All hail the conquering hero: Samsung Galaxy S III.
Selling more than 10 million Galaxy S III smartphones, and more than 10 million Galaxy Note phones.Samsung has flexed considerable muscle this summer. During the second quarter, the company shipped nearly twice as many smartphones as Apple. What remains to be seen is whether the company can hold on to its market position once Apple begins selling the iPhone 5, widely rumored to be released Sept. 21.
On Thursday, Samsung has reported they have sold more than 20 million units of their popular Galaxy S III smartphone. The South Korean company has achieved the mark after releasing the tech device just 100 days ago, and they’ve relied on competitive pricing to get there. However, they will be hoping to continue this pace as a brand new smartphone becomes available from their strongest competitor, Apple.
