5 Million Samsung Galaxy Note Units Were Shipped In 5 Months

Only five months after the smartphone-tablet hybrid, Samsung Galaxy Note, was launched, the South Korea-based company shipped over 5 million units. Analysts say that  the demand will continue to raise, which says a lot about how the tech enthusiasts welcomed the huge 5.3-inch display.

Samsung announced in a post published on Samsung Tomorrow website that more that 5 million Samsung Galaxy Note units were shipped over the last five months.

Besides the gigantic 5.3-inch display, Samsung Galaxy Note also comes with a special stylus, called S Pen, which comes with higher sensibility, making writing and drawing much more easier.

More than 1 million units were sold in the first two months after Galaxy Note was made available for sale. Comparing with Apple’s last generation smartphone, over 4 million iPhone 4S copies were shipped in over the first weekend prior to the launch, writes Apple.com.

67% of the Samsung Galaxy Note units sold world wide were shipped to South Korea. The Asian country was followed by China, Spain and France, countries where the 5.3-inch smartphone was popular, say the officials of the South Korean-company.

The smartphone running on Google’s mobile operating system, will soon receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update – the latest software version available on the market.

Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S2 are still the most popular devices developed by the Asian phone maker. More than 30 million Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 units were shipped globally so far. Rumor has it that the South Korean company will launch the third-generation Samsung Galaxy S in late April.

Those not aware of Samsung Galaxy Note technical specifications should know that the Android-powered smartphone features a 5.3-inch Super AMLOED display covered by a Gorilla Glass layer, dual-core 1.4 GHz Exynos ARM Cortex-A9 chipset, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB / 32 GB of internal flash storage, user-facing 2 megapixel camera and 8 megapixel front facing camera with autofocus, LED flash and support for full HD video recording.
