Korean Galaxy S Receives Update: Version DG07; Samsung Expects to Sell 10 Million Worldwide


Samsung’s released a minor update for the Samsung Galaxy S in South Korea. It’s said that the update will improve Bluetooth A2DP playback, call quality, and more enhancements and fixes.


Also being reported this morning is that Samsung expects to sell over 10 million Galaxy S handsets worldwide. In Korea, they’ve already surpassed 300,000 units with the overall total being just over 1 million. Given the right marketing campaign and strategy, I see no reason Samsung couldn’t reach this goal. Once the phone is offered by nearly every carrier at a subsidized rate (including all four major US carriers who have yet to launch their devices), we could see that number skyrocket and see Samsung well on their way to meeting that goal.

Even at 1 million sold, I think everyone can suppress their worries about purchasing from Samsung and not receiving support: you simply can’t ignore a phone with the userbase that Samsung’s expecting to build up.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. This is good news..Always nice to see more competition. Now lets just wait and see how they support the device.

  2. attention developers! 10mirrrrion galaxy S will be in the market! if 10% of those users buy an app for $1 each… do the math.

  3. I’m still deciding whether to ditch my N1 for the Vibrant but no LED flash is a deal breaker (trust me I need one do come in handy in dark situations) but we’ll see

  4. It is funny how Samsung can sell 10mil of these world wide (i know they havnt yet but they are expecting to) when other companies using their screens can’t get any.

  5. @Hendrix…they haven’t sold 10 million yet and no other phone has their super amoled screen. Their super amoled screen really is their selling point (thinner, energy efficient, bright etc). The rest of the phone is standard.

  6. They are also the first android to have a gyroscope.

  7. @Hendrix-Samsung is keeping their Super Amoled to themselves for the next 18 months..

    You’re thinking regular amoled screen.

  8. Something to ponder is if they will have enough Super Amoled displays to produce 10 million units. Another fact I would like to know is if anyone will be trading or returning their iphone 4 in to get this phone or wait to see if Apple will really produce some sort of recall. ( I highly doubt a recall but it would seem to be in there best interest to) oh well better for Android market. :)

  9. Would be nice if we could get this a2dp update stateside.
