This happened on Tuesday, which makes the Galaxy Note 10 the fastest-selling Galaxy S and Note-branded phone. In other words, the Galaxy Note 10 has reached 1 million sales faster than any other Galaxy S or Note-branded phone before it.
To make things interesting, Samsung made only a 5G variant of the Galaxy Note 10 available in its homeland. The Galaxy Note 10 was made available on August 23, and it took it only 25 days to reach this milestone.
Initial Galaxy Note 9 sales numbers destroyed by the Galaxy Note 10
The source also reports that in the first month, the Galaxy Note 10 sales completely destroyed the Galaxy Note 9 numbers. Samsung sold twice as much Galaxy Note 10s than it did the Galaxy Note 9 phones in the first month in Korea. The source even reports that the number has crossed that mark comfortable, so the sales more than doubled.
The Galaxy S8 was the previous record-holder for the company. It took the Galaxy S8 37 days to reach the 1 million sales mark. That phone is followed by the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S10, reports Yonhap.
It will be interesting to see if the sales numbers for the Galaxy Note 10 series are as stunning in global markets as well. No information was shared at this point, so we'll have to wait for some info.
Samsung had introduced the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ last month. The two phones debuted a brand new look for the series, and removed the audio jack.
Samsung moved the display camera hole to the central position at the top of the phone's display. The Galaxy Note 10 series also features considerably sharper corners than the Galaxy S10 and Note 9.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ are identical in terms of the design. They do differ in size, and some other internals, though. The Galaxy Note 10+ is definitely the more powerful device.
The company also decided to retain the same camera setup here, well, for the most part. The Galaxy Note 10+ offers one more camera than the Galaxy Note 10, as it copied the Galaxy S10 5G's setup.
Galaxy S and Note brands may unite next year
It's quite interesting to see that the Galaxy Note 10 series is already breaking records. The two phones are certainly not cheap, but it seems like users in Samsung's homeland are quite interested in them.
These may actually be the last Galaxy Note-branded phones that we'll see. According to a recent report, Samsung may opt to unify Galaxy S and Galaxy Note brands into one brand, the Galaxy One. We'll see how accurate that rumor is next year.
