The Galaxy S III has sold 30 million units in five months, Samsung has announced.
The bestselling handset, which went on sale in May, broke the record the manufacturer set with the Galaxy S II, which sold 20 million devices in the same period after it was released in 2011.
The manufacturer revealed that on average one Galaxy S III was sold every 0.45 seconds. It hit the 10 million sales mark after 50 days and had sold 20 million units 100 days after launch.
JK Shin, president and head of IT and mobile communications division, said: 'The Galaxy S III continues to be a runaway favourite with customers around the world. Meeting this sales milestone in five months sets another record for Samsung, and we are extremely proud and yet motivated to contine to provide our customers with products that they love. On behalf of Samsung Mobile, I appreciate millions of customers around the world that have chose the Samsung Galaxy S III.'
