Samsung Galaxy S4 passes 10 million mark

Samsung has revealed that it has sold a colossal 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones since the device hit shelves on April 27th. 

The Korean giant launched the Android-packing handset back in March at a glittering, but much pilloried New York press event.

Still, the impressive numbers it's racked up since suggests Sammy’s aggressive Galaxy S4 marketing campaign has more than paid off. 

By way of comparison, last year’s Galaxy S3 took 50 days to reach the same landmark, while the Galaxy S2 had to wait five months before it passed the 10 million mark.

In a statement, Samsung’s CEO, JK Shin, said, “On behalf of Samsung, I would like to thank the millions of customers around the world who have chosen the Samsung Galaxy S4. 

"At Samsung we'll continue to pursue innovation inspired by and for people.”

The huge figures are bound to cause a stir at Apple, especially as Samsung is now known to have cornered a third of the smartphone market in the first three months of this year. Sammy’s profits are also expected to surpass Apple’s this quarter.

There is one key thing to note, however. Samsung is talking about sales to networks, rather than punters. 

Conversely, Apple always talks about sales to end users. It’s a vital point and one worth bringing up when talking tech trash with your pals.
