The new model set a new record for Samsung, generating sales quicker than any of its predecessors. Sales of the Galaxy S3 reached the 10-million mark 50 days after its launch, while the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S took five and seven months each to reach the level.

Market watchers expected the new flagship model to be sold well as its archrival Apple had no plan to launch a new model in the near future.

The Galaxy S4 was available in more than 110 countries and would gradually be rolled out to a total of 155 nations in cooperation with 327 mobile operators, Samsung said.
