South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has officially confirmed sales of over 10 million Galaxy Note units in nine months since the device landed on shelves. Previously, Samsung announced sales of 5 million units in the first five months of availability of its largest Android smartphone to date. Younghee Lee, head of global marketing for the company's mobile division, was the one to confirm these numbers, CNet reports. The level of sales is impressive, considering the fact that Galaxy Note was launched on a niche market, with a screen far larger than any other handset available around the world. Galaxy Note, which packs features destined for both smartphones and tablet PCs, is expected to receive a successor before the end of this year, with a larger screen and hardware capabilities similar to those available inside Galaxy S III at the moment.
