Samsung has become synonymous with Android. They’ve been incredibly successful with the little green robot, pushing massive quantities of devices as soon as they hit shelves. Today, Samsung has been kind enough to share some numbers on just how many Galaxy S IIIs have been sold in the first five months of their existence: 30 million.
Outpacing and outselling both the original Galaxy S and Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S III has hit the 30 million sold mark just five months after its retail debut. According to the chart kindly provided by Samsung over at Samsung Tomorrow, an S III is sold every 0.45 seconds. Over the last 157 days, Samsung has sold enough S IIIs to cover the surface area of 12 Colosseums, which combined weigh as much as 100 Humpback Whales, and stacked on end would be roughly 29 Mt. Everests tall.
While we don’t expect to see the Galaxy S IV until Mobile World Congress 2013, CES won’t be without its fair share of Samsung-related news this year. The Australian Channel News is reporting that, according to Sources based in Asia, Samsung will be revealing a complete brand refresh this coming January.
The rebranding effort will be led by Scott Bedbury, famous for working with both Nike and Starbucks among other companies. Samsung wants to continue to break out of the Asian market and make it clear they are a global force to be reckoned with. It’ll be interesting to see what Samsung finally lays down the blue oval for.
