Samsung Passes 100 Million Mark for Galaxy S Phones

galaxy s 100 million

Every time a Galaxy device gets released from Samsung, they are quick to tell us the sales numbers after the launch, as each new device is on a level not matched by many in the industry. All of those sales numbers have added up to the point where today, Samsung has announced that all of their Galaxy S devices have totalled over 100 million devices in the hands of consumers.

Samsung took to their Flickr page to post the short announcement and also give us more numbers on the Galaxy S3. The S3 has sold 30 million units over the past 5 months, 40 million in 7 months, and they estimate that there are 190,000 S3 units sold each day.

Just think, in a few months time the Galaxy S4 may be contributing to these ridiculous sales numbers. Too soon?

    I just got the GS3 and love it. It is an awesome phone. But for the GS4 to come out, its too soon. Unless its going to have some new features besides that keyboard which I don’t see lots of people using it. but I would like to hold it in my hand to see how it feels compared to the GS3.

    Its actually quite sad, thinking about their sub standard build quality, their GIMMICKY SVoice, Spen, Designed for humans branding! Its very lame..
    They got nice work done on the software front, but tons of phones exist better than the S3!
    All their credit goes to the Marketing devision!

      Wonder how many of the phones are refurbs and replacement phones for broken and flawed devices, just cracked my Gnex screen 2 weeks ago and got a new one because of it made me wonder that

    Two favorite phones I’ve ever owned: 1. Galaxy Note 2 2. Galaxy S3. And yes, once upon a time, I was an iPhone owner.

    As much as they have diluted the brand, I’m glad they are doing well with the high-end. I am loving my Note II. Once you go big, there’s no going back!

    • Unless the Nexus 5/4S comes out on Verizon with a 4.7″ screen… have two upgrades available in September. Already wondering what phone I should buy.

        Give up on that dream. Google will never make another CDMA phone again, so that means no Verizon. If you really insist on staying on Verizon, then you should just get the SIV or Note III.

    Love My S3 and will look at the S4 when it arrives.


    Just got off the phone with VZW. My Note2 is getting replaced because the external speaker blew. 😛

      I don’t think you understand how emoticons work.

        What’s wrong with putting that one there? I think it’s appropriate. It’s a semi-happy dude with his tounge sticking out cause he’s getting a free replacement…..

        • OH, that’s what it means. I’ve been using it wrong all these years. Pretty small use case though. 😛

      So does that mean your adding another one to push it to 100,000,001?

  • normmcgarry

    190,000 per day? Seriously that’s 2 per second. That means they have to somehow be producing an SIII off the line every 0.5 second. I’d love to see that assembly line.

    • tyguy829

      they probably have multiple factories

    • That’s a crazy figure. I have no reason to doubt the 190,000/day number, but it’s pretty astounding, considering I only get a new phone every 1-2 years.

      There are a lot of chinese.

    • Write it in to How it Made? TV Show. That would be interesting to see. Robotics at its finest I presume.

    • I thought that number was crazy, too, and was about to do the math. I’ll trust your calculation, and it is indeed pretty insane.

      • normmcgarry

        2.199 per second!
