According to a report by the Yonhap news agency, Samsung Electronics Co. has already moved 10 million Galaxy S III devices. The company expects that figure to double by the fall.
"It appears that its [total sales] has exceeded 10 million units," J.K. Shin, Samsung's head of Mobile told Yonhap.
However, Shin didn't confirm whether or not this figure represents shipments to retailers or direct customer sales.
The Galaxy S III was first released in Europe and Asia in May, followed by the U.S. and Canada last month. In all, the smartphone is available in more than 140 countries.
The demand was initially so high for the device that the originally announced Canadian release date was pushed back a week.
The S III features a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED touch display and runs on a Snapdragon S4 Dual Core 1.5 GHz processor and the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS. It also has 16GB and 32GB internal memory options, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MB front-facing camera, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and Near Field Communications (NFC) capabilities.
