According to a report from the Associated Press, South Korean firm Samsung Electronics has sold more than 100 million units of Galaxy S smartphone series in less than three years since its launch.
Samsung had rolled out their first Galaxy smartphone model in May 2010 to catch up with the hugely popular Apple iPhone.
Samsung reached the figure sooner that Apple. It took about four years for Apple to sell more than 100 million iPhones.
In a statement, Samsung said on Monday that it had sold more than 25 million Galaxy S smartphones, 40 million Galaxy S II smartphones and 41 million Galaxy S III smartphones in three years.
On June 5, 2012, Apple had filed for preliminary injunctions in the U. S. District Court against Samsung Electronics, claiming the Galaxy S III had violated at least two of the company's patents.
Apple requested that the court ban sales of the S III prior to its scheduled June 2012 U.S. launch.
