Samsung looks to have another hit device on its hands. Speaking earlier today to Korean media, JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics, said that the South Korean manufacturer has now shipped five million Galaxy Note 3 phablets.
Shin attributes some of the success of the Galaxy Note 3 to the positive market response that the first two models received. From a niche product when it was unveiled, the Galaxy Note lineup has now established itself as a flagship line with corresponding sales for Samsung.
Each generation of Galaxy Note has seen shipments accelerate. It took five months for the original Galaxy Note to hit the 5 million shipments milestone. The Galaxy Note II took two months to accomplish the same and now, the Galaxy Note 3 has done it in a month.
First announced at IFA 2013 in September, the Galaxy Note 3 made its Canadian debut on October 4 with a number of carriers including Bell, Rogers, TELUS and WIND Mobile.
