Samsung has revealed that its flagship Galaxy S III sold 50,000 units in its first day on sale in South Korea. The phone, which in Korea ships with a quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity, more than doubled the day one sales of its predecessor, the Galaxy S II. The original Galaxy S sold 10,000 on its first day in Korea, while the Galaxy S II hit 24,000. The S III launched on SK Telecom, KT and LG U+ yesterday, and the manufacturer said it hit a new record for sales of a Samsung product in a single day.

That 50,000 will go some way towards helping Samsung hit its goal of selling 10 million S III phones worldwide by the end of July. Last year the company sold more than 20 million Galaxy S IIs, some 5 million of which came from its home country.

I'd say those are weak numbers for a home country launch.

JHK1984 says:

You are a weak number for not recognizing Sistar

Splange says:

Home country launch doesn't mean much. I'm sure RIM sells more blackberries in the USA than in Canada. Apple has better home launch numbers because the US population is so huge.

south korea is a smaller country compared to usa. you might want to factor that in.
