Sales of the Galaxy Note have surpassed 10 million locally

Samsung Electronics’ trailblazing phablet, the Galaxy Note, has recorded cumulative sales of 10 million in Korea, the company said yesterday.

The milestone was reached in 25 months since the release of the Galaxy Note 1.

The device, which features an easy-to-grip digital stylus called the S Pen, was a pioneer in creating a market for phablets - hybrids of smartphones and tablet computers - helping Samsung bolster its position as the world’s largest smartphone vendor over Apple with its iPhone.

After the release in October 2011 of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note 1, the company rolled out the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 in September 2012 and the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 in September 2013. Sales performances quickened with each new model. It took nine months for the Note 1 to reach 10 million sales worldwide, four months for the Note 2 and two months for the Note 3.

The company said it will continue to suggest to introduce innovative technologies that are “ahead of their time.”

“We will try harder so that we could become a brand that the whole world aspires [to be],” an official of the company said.

Marking the 10 million domestic sales milestone, the company said it will run a promotion for the Note series until Feb. 7, during which it will give 1,000 new buyers a Samsung camera. Also, 50 new buyers will receive tickets to musicals being performed in Seoul.
