Phablet sold three million units during its first month of availability.
Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Note 2 phablet has sold over five million units since its launch two months ago.
The Korean technology firm said in a statement that the smartphone/tablet hybrid achieved the milestone a month after the company sold three million units of the device during the first 30 days after its launch.
The device, which boasts a 5.5-inch screen, is selling approximately three times faster than its predecessor. The original Galaxy Note reached three million sales after three months. Due to a partnership with 260 carriers around the globe, Samsung said the Galaxy Note 2 could eventually sell as many as 20 million units, which would represent around 10 more million units than its predecessor.
One device that has reached the aforementioned milestone is the Galaxy S3. It sold 20 million units during its first 100 days of availability, and recently exceeded 30 million units sold.
