Samsung Pakistan has sold 110,000 units of its flagship device, Galaxy SIII, since its launch in June 2012, said Farid Ullah Jan, Head of Samsung Mobile Division for Pakistan and Afghanistan, during a press briefing in Lahore today.
Farid said that Samsung sells around 10,000 units of Galaxy SIII on average in Pakistan.
Priced at Rs. 62,000 – when launched – Samsug Galaxy SIII currently costs around Rs. 53,000 and is considered one of top Android phones in the market, however, it is soon to be replaced by Galaxy S4 which is going to hit Pakistani stores by first week of May, 2013.
Pakistan’s handset industry is fast transitioning towards smartphones, despite low buying power of masses and in-availability of 3G.
It merits mentioning here that Samsung is said to have sold over 50 million of Samsung Galaxy S III devices globally (till March 2013).
