Samsung sells 5 million Galaxy S devices
Samsung has sold 5 million Galaxy S handsets globally since June and is aiming to sell another 5 million in fourth quarter.
The manufacturer has also introduced a new smartphone called Wave II, running its own ‘bada’ operating system, aimed at the mid-range market segment.
The company said it expected strong sales for the Galaxy S to help its 2010 smartphone sales reach 25 million units.
The Galaxy S is Samsung's best-selling smartphone model, almost matching total smartphone sales last year. Samsung said it aimed to sell another 5 million Galaxy S handsets in the current quarter.
The Wave II, which has a 3.7 inch LCD screen, a five-megapixel camera and supports video recording, will first go on sale in November in France.
