Samsung expects Galaxy S III sales to hit 30 million in 2012, Galaxy Note II to hit 20 million by next year

While speaking to Korean news agency, Yonhap, Samsung’s head of mobile JK Shin said that he expects Galaxy S III sales to hit 30 million by year’s end. That’s a pretty big deal when you consider the Galaxy S II peaked at 20 million. The Galaxy Note II will also show amazing growth as compared to the original. The original moved 10 million units, but the new version will double that by hitting 20 million. JK Shin doesn’t expect that to happen this year though, but it would still be amazing. If you’re doing the math, that’s 50 million units between the two phones.

Right now Samsung is the leading smartphone manufacturer, but I’m sure Apple has something up their sleeve with today’s iPhone announcement. The iPhone is always successful, but Apple always seems to get a bigger push every two years when they announce a bigger update. It seems like this war has only just begun.
