The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is easily one of the top 5 smartphones to break cover this year and Samsung has succeeded yet again in appealing to the masses with this new phablet. According to a new figure issued by the company, the company has shipped over 10 million units of the smartphone so far to retailers and other sources. The company has achieved this feat in a little over 2 months since its launch in late September. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 2 took four months to reach this milestone and the first gen Galaxy Note took nine months, so the Galaxy Note 3 has successfully managed to surpass its predecessors in terms of shipments.
Although shipments aren’t final sales, it goes without saying that a majority of the 10 million have been sold to consumers. With the holiday season approaching, we can expect the phablet to sell even quicker. There’s no breakdown of the exact shipment figures from the two variants that are available in the market – one with the Exynos 5 Octa chipset and the other with Snapdragon 800 chip for LTE markets. We’re guessing a majority of these sales come from Asia which has always been Samsung’s stronghold apart from the U.S. and Europe.
