In the Samsung Galaxy UNPACKED 2019 event yesterday, we witnessed the official presentation of a myriad of new products, from the new Galaxy S10 to the Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone, not forgetting the Galaxy Buds wireless headphones and the new wearable devices. The event was also used to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy S series and consequently could not miss a little self-celebration through the numbers that summarize the success story of Samsung in the mobile.
Ascended on stage before the presentation of the new flagship smartphones, Samsung Electronics president DJ Koh proudly announced that over the last decade the South Korean giant has reached the remarkable goal of 2 billion Galaxy devices sold worldwide.
These numbers, although apparently impressive, still deserve to be interpreted: when Samsung talks about 2 billion devices Galaxy does not refer only to the Galaxy S flagships, there are in fact many and different models and types of devices that flow under the brand “Galaxy”. The manufacturer did not specify how many of these two billion were actually smartphones and also did not say how many of these devices are still active.
