This Monday Samsung launched the Galaxy S III LTE in their own home country of Korea, and it managed to reach record sales on it’s first day of availability. Unlike the LTE version of Galaxy S III with a dual-core processor, previously released in the US and Canada, the Korean version is packing Samsungs own Exynos Quad-core processor.
On it’s first day, 50,000 units of the S III LTE where sold in total via all three major Korean carriers. In comparison these sales figures truly pales the first day sales in Korea of the previous Galaxy models. The Galaxy S sold 10.000 units, and the Galaxy S II sold 24.000 units their first day.
