Samsung let it leak to a Korean newspaper that it already has 9 million pre-orders for its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S III, Reuters reports.
Don’t get excited, Android fans. As Jim Dalrymple of The Loop points out, there’s a big fat asterisk next to that figure.
That’s because the pre-orders come from about 100 carriers, not individual customers. There won’t be 9 million people walking around with Galaxy S IIIs when the phone launches overseas on May 29.
