Samsung’s CEO, JK Shin, has revealed that the Galaxy Note 3 is outstripping its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 2, in terms of reaching landmark sales figures. In its first full month of sales, the Galaxy Note 3 has sold over 5 million handsets, a figure that took the Galaxy Note 2 two months to achieve, according to Korean news outlet Hanooki . This achievement is all the more impressive when compared to the original Galaxy Note, which required 5 months to sell 5 million handsets, a milestone that was positively received at the time.
Unlike the Galaxy Note 2 however; which saw a fragmented roll-out, with the US carriers being slow off the mark to bring the model to market; the Galaxy Note 3 has seen a much more coordinated release, with the handset being made available to all the major markets simultaneously. This, coupled with Samsung’s huge marketing budget which ensures that every flagship Samsung product is brought to the public’s attention, is a huge factor in how Samsung manage to consistently improve sales of its handsets.
No sales figures have been released for the Samsung Gear at present, though it is known that Samsung were hoping to sell 2-3 Gears for every 10 Galaxy Note 3 devices sold.
The GALAXY Note 3 comes with a wider (5.7″) Full HD Super AMOLED display, yet slimmer (8.3mm) and lighter (168g) hardware design, and is powered by a 1.9 GHz Quad-Core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB user memory, 3,200 mAh battery and runs on Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. Also, equipped with a 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera with Smart Stabilization and high CRI LED flash, you can take crisp photos, even in low light and active situations. Plus, it can record and play in full HD (1080p), and record in UHD.
