Samsung Galaxy S III takes the crown from the iPhone 4S, becomes the sales king for Q3 2012

Galaxy S III overtakes the iPhone 4S to become the best-selling smartphone for Q3 2012

It looks as though Samsung have shipped quite a lot of Galaxy S III's this quarter, as they have just dethroned Apple's iPhone 4S as the best-selling smartphone for Q3 2012 according to Strategy Analytics' latest numbers.


Strategy Analytics' latest numbers for Q3 2012 show that there were 18 million Galaxy S III's sold worldwide, compared to 16.2 million for the iPhone 4S and just 6 million for the new iPhone 5.

Of course, there are reasons why people didn't jump on the iPhone 4S, as the iPhone 5 was right around the corner. But, it's great to see that the king is being dethroned in more ways than one, with their stock prices continuing to tank. We might have another Facebook on our hands here.
