Since its launch back in November, the Galaxy Note has been slowly but surely picking up steam as it heads towards a US release. In December, Samsung reported to have shipped one million units of the phone globally, and is now revealing that 700,000 Notes shipped in South Korean since the phone first hit shelves. The number was enough to give the Galaxy Note the majority share of the LTE smartphone market in Korea with a resounding 66 percent. It is important to remember, however, that the number does not reflect end-user sales. The figure simply accounts for the number of handsets sold by Samsung to retailers and distributors. The Samsung Galaxy Note will see a boost in its numbers when it hits North America later this month, but the early results show that customers have not been turned off by the phone’s mammoth size.
