Seoul, March 28, 2012 – Samsung Electronics announced today that GALAXY Note, released in October last year, has surpassed 5 million sales in just 5 months. Thanks to the fast selling GALAXY Note, Samsung Electronics has gained about two thirds of the South Korean mobile phone market share, making Samsung the leading mobile phone provider in Korea in addition to China, France, Spain and others.
The GALAXY Note is also winning praise from consumers and the media across the globe. In a smartphone performance test conducted by a European consumer group from France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands, the GALAXY Note’s touchscreen, call quality, battery life, and photo quality made it the number one smartphone of their choice. The key to the GALAXY Note’s success can be said to be its 5.3” HD Super-AMOLED screen as well its revolutionary S-Pen, which accurately recreates the analogue experience of using a real pen.
To add to the variety and richness of the GALAXY Note experience, Samsung also announced a ‘Premium Suite’ upgrade that will enhance and add to the features that accent many GALAXY Note exclusive features like the S Pen.
In an effort to allow worldwide customers experience the extraordinary life GALAXY Note brings, Samsung held a launching ceremony and a ‘Developer Conference’ in Tokyo today as it lands the GALAXY Note in Japan next month through NTT Docomo, Japan’s largest mobile communications company, featuring LTE support.
