According to reports, Samsung Electronic Co has received around 9-million preorders before the launch of its third generation, Smart phone Samsung Galaxy SIII. Samsung has received orders from more than 100 global carriers.
Samsung Electronics, who recently brought down apple as the world’s biggest smart-phone maker in its first quarter, helped by its line-up of Galaxy named devices running on Google’s free Android software.
The latest version of its smart-phone, unveiled this month, will first go on sale on May 29 in Germany before being rolled out to other countries.
The newspaper, which cited an unidentified Samsung official, also said the company’s smart-phone factory in South Korea was running at its full capacity of 5 million units per month.
Samsung declined to comment.
It said late last month that the new Galaxy S smart-phone would “substantially contribute” to its second-quarter earnings.
