Samsung announced its new flagship, the Galaxy S III, earlier this month at their Unpacked event. The phone has yet to launch, but that’s not stopping it from setting some records. UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has received more pre-orders for the S III than any other phone this year. It doesn’t stop there, as UK carrier Vodaphone themselves has stated that the newest Galaxy device has more pre-orders than any other Android handset they’ve ever carried.
Exact numbers were not available, but this is impressive for the phone that many felt was a disappointment. By the end of next month we should have some sales numbers for international markets, and things look to be in Samsung’s favor.
