The global sales of the Galaxy S III, Samsung's newest entrant in the smartphone space have hit the 10 million mark, as per a statement by Shin Jong-kyun, the president of the company's information technology and mobile communication division, reports Yonhap news agency. The news comes just a couple of months after the official launch of the highly anticipated smartphone. Successor to the company's popular Galaxy S II smartphone, the S III was expected to hit the number in July, according to a report published in late June. The report added that before the S III's launch, Samsung had announced that it had already received 9 million pre-orders. Samsung further added that that the phone has been received well across the world. Reaching the 10 million mark just two months into sales means that about 190,000 Galaxy S III handsets are being sold every day. These numbers take the S III ahead of its very popular predecessor the Galaxy S II that reported sales hitting 10 million, five months after it reached consumers.
