Last we heard, the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S II had moved over 52 million units worldwide between them, and it doesn't look like the latest in the series is going to struggle to live up to the lofty precedent. According to Reuters, Samsung's head of telecommunications JK Shin expects the Galaxy S III to top the 10 million unit mark by the end of July.

It's not clear whether this refers to units shipped to retailers or sold to customers, but either way it's an impressive figure — we heard before launch that the device had over 9 million pre-orders, and Sprint has already had to delay its launch due to "overwhelming demand." It's easy to see why the Galaxy S III might spark such excitement, too, as we were more than a little impressed with it in our review.
