A number of observers were skeptical of the chances of the device in enticing customers to purchase it. However the recent announcement by Samsung may have answered these doubts among some industry watchers as it indicated that around five million units of the device were sold internationally.
Domestic sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note have reportedly reached 67 percent of the market for mobile phones. The device has reportedly topped the markets in Spain, France and China.
However some observers are still doubtful with the figures given by Samsung since the post supposedly used the term ‘supply base’, which showed that the figure indicates the number of Samsung Galaxy Note units delivered instead of specifying that these units were in fact purchased by customers.
Due to this some observers are thinking that some retailers may have a number of Samsung Galaxy Note units in their inventory.
Similar announcements were also made by Samsung with the Samsung Galaxy Tab as it reportedly announced global figures instead of the actual sales of the device in the United States. However the company later indicated that the performance of the device in the market was not quite impressive.
However Samsung later clarified that the five million units represented the actual global sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which has debunked speculations that the figure only represented the deliveries made for the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note features the 5.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1280 by 800, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, and supports the LTE network of AT&T. Among the distinctive features of the Samsung Galaxy Note is its S Pen stylus which may contribute to its appeal to customers.
