The Galaxy SIII, Samsung’s flagship device, is the best selling smartphone in Q3 2012.
According to a research from Strategy Analytics, Samsung sold over 18 million units of the handset during quarter three, compared to 16 million iPhone sales.
The numbers are showing that the Galaxy SIII is the world’s best selling phone right now.
Analysts are adding that the device has proven that is widely popular with operators and customers across Asia, Europe and North America and the iPhone 5 is likely to get back its top position in Q4.
And that’s not all – according to a similar report, Samsung’s Galaxy SII was the most widely available device during Q1 2012 with all retail shops and mobile networks offering the device.
The Galaxy SII was crowned the most available smartphone, surpassing the Nokia Lumia 820, the iPhone 4 and the HTC One X, even though these were following very close behind in the list.
