Samsung revealed recently that international sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have reached the five million unit level. The recent milestone comes just two months after the ‘phablet’ was released into the market by the South Korean manufacturer.

The notable milestone for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was made possible through the partnerships that the company has with numerous mobile service provider around the world. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has proven to be more popular than its predecessor, which took three months before it reached the three million unit level.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 reached the three million unit level within thirty days after it was unveiled by the company.

Analysts were initially pessimistic about the market for the smartphone/tablet hybrid since it was too small for a tablet and too big for a smartphone. However, the according to Jack Gold of J. Gold Associates, the form factor of the phablet is suitable for a number of uses who do not require a device that is small enough to fit their pocket. Its size was suitable enough for watching videos and surfing the net. It can also be used as an e-reader.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is already available in all markets around the world. It features as 5.5-inch display screen with a 1280x720 resolution, quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage that can be expanded to 64GB using a microSD memory card, and uses the Jelly Bean Android 4.1.1 OS.

However the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 still has a lot of ground to cover when compared to the sales mark reached by the Samsung Galaxy S3, which has already reached thirty million units as of November 5.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may also face an obstacle following its inclusion in the patent infringement lawsuit filed by Apple against the South Korean company. But the case is not scheduled to go on trial until 2014, which means that sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can still increase and possibly double the total sales of its predecessor.

In addition to the report about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, reports have continued to emerge on the possible launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 next year. However, these reports remain unconfirmed and should be taken with a grain of salt.
