Samsung Galaxy Note II sells three million units in first month

There is apparently a pretty big audience for a really big smartphone. Samsung's 5.5 inch Galaxy Note II, which is even bigger than the original 5.3 inch Galaxy Note, is selling better than the first version.

In a translated press release from Samsung, the company said that sales of the Galaxy Note II have now reached the three million unit mark after about 37 days. Samsung claims that sales of the Galaxy Note II are currently three times that of the original.

The smartphone went on sale in the US just over a week ago from some wireless carriers and will be made available by the top five carriers before the end of the month. You can check out our extensive, and ultimately positive, review of the Galaxy Note II, right here.

The original Galaxy Note sold 10 million units between its launch in late 2011 and August, and it seems like the launch of the Galaxy Note II will surpass that of the original. This, combined with over 20 million unit sales of the Galaxy S III, as of September, shows that Samsung is by far the biggest seller of high end Android-based smartphones around the world.

I got the original Note and love it EXCEPT for the fact that it has TouchWiz and not AOSP. For that reason alone, even though I want the Note II, I will have to "settle" for the Nexus 4 instead. Will be hard adjusting to such a "small" screen though.

I love mine. Is Just such a versatile useful thing. I came from an iphone and this device is just superb. Love the notification. Apps. The speed the large screen and the ability to jot down notes wherever I am. So handy

you people simply dont realise how small are whole populations of US and europe together? Just pakistan and indonesia have more people,and then add china,india,bangladesh and many "smaller" countryes,like malesia,japan,iran,turkey etc, etc...samsung doesn't need one sold phone in US, and his sales-count will remain sky-high...Just go on any global popular site and count: guy from india,then paki,india,india,paki again,chinese,chinese,chinese-indonesian, etc...one of ten is from US or poor Europe...that is reallity,no hard feelings.This is simple explanation for these sale-results...

YES. I am going to be pre-ordering mine from VZW as soon as it gets a little bit more closer to delivery date. VZW is said to have it by the 21st. So I am planning to buy it for my Xmas present. Woot Woot!!!!

Woh. That's a surprise to me. Wouldn't have thought it's sell so well. I haven't seen anyone I know using them.
there are 350M people in the USA. How many do you actually know? Seems people in your circle would be small in comparison.

Hey, I have a Gnote1, but this isn't anything more than other mfg's do.
Sold XXX million? To who....warehouses or actual individual customers.

There's all these supposed sales but I've seen more Lumias in the wild than the Note II. Something's fishy here. I have NEVER seen a Note in the wild. However I've seen 2 or 3 Lumias and a mix of other Windows phones. And we all know how well those have been selling. So where are these notes going?

I know more people using a Samsung Galaxy Note 1/2 than I do using any Windows phone. With that said, Ill be the happy owner of a 920 in the coming months.

I have seen only one person with a Windows phone in a city of 300k people. Must mean that they did not sell what they claim they did.

I personally have never seen a Lumia, guess they didn't sell any then by your logic.

I did not see any Windows Phones either here. 765 000 pop city. I've seen many many Androids and iPhones.

This said the Zune was nowhere to be found in store here so maybe it's the same for WP dunno did not shop for a phone lately.

You really need to start hanging around smarter people.

So what? That proves what? Guess what, I've never seen a UFO in the wild, that doesn't mean they don't exist. I've never seen an Andaconda in the wild, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. I've never seen YOU in the wild, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

I have seen several Galaxy Notes the original in the wild and I wanted one except VZW didn't get it. I am getting this one as soon as it hits. It will match my white Galaxy S III.

Just because where you live you don't see one, doesn't mean its fishy.
Guess what, Apple sold 5M iPhone's 5 on pre-order, I didn't see the first one in the wild until 2 arrived at our office 3 weeks later.

Its not fishy, you're just mad.

Very good reply. Thank you. Stupid people only hang with stupid people who use dumb phones that only look fancy. Even tho they say the GS3 and the Note are high end, I see them as simple because they don't use a flashy design. They use an attractive styling that is easy to hold, use and has very awesome features.

Now I will have 2 devices in my home that I can share the extended features with.

In Australia I have never seen a Lumia, or any other Windows phone in a consumers hand...
