Samsung says five million Galaxy S handsets sold worldwide as Japanese launch announced

Manufacturer Samsung said it has sold more than five million Galaxy S smartphones worldwide since launching the device slightly over four months ago.

This includes sales of two million in the US and one million in Korea.

“The Galaxy S has been a phenomenal success in the global smartphone market,” Samsung said in a statement.

Both the Galaxy S (pictured right) and Galaxy Tab (pictured left) will be made available in Japan through local mobile operator NTT DOCOMO. The Galaxy S will go on sale in late October with the Tab in late November.

President and chief executive officer at NTT DOCOMO Ryuji Yamada said: “We expect our Japanese users to make full use of their high performance to experience the wonderful world of advanced mobile content and functionality.”

  1. What great timing. They launch the phone as iphone 4 is launched with all its problems. I think many Galaxy purchasers are converts from the iphone 3/3G not wanting to pay £600 for a replacement 4.
