Not quite keeping up with the iPhone 4S

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Samsung has sold more than 10 million of its flagship Galaxy S III phones worldwide in seven weeks, according to Shin Jong-kyun, the company's mobile tech top dog.

The phone was first unveiled on 29 May in the UK, it runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich and it packs a 1280 x 720 PenTile OLED display and an ARM Cortex A9-based quad-core processor.

We asked Samsung in the UK to comment on the statistics, reported by the Yonhap news agency, and will update when they do.

It took the S II five months to hit the 10 million sales worldwide mark, so the new flagship phone is racing ahead of its predecessor. But the sales figure won't beat the iPhone 4S, which became the world's fastest-selling phone in October 2011 when it sold 4 million in three days.

Between October 2011 and March 2012, Apple had sold 72.5 million iPhones, making it the most popular smartphone series in the world, although the secretive shininess secretor hasn't specified how many of those were the 4S model. Overall Samsung sells more phones than Apple with a third of the smartphone market. ®
