The report comes from Korea, where the new Samsung flagship has managed to break launch day sales records of the Galaxy S5. According to the report, the device has managed to best the Galaxy S4’s launch day sales by over 30%.
Samsung has also announced that in some of the European countries, the new flagship has managed to sell more than double of what Galaxy S4 managed on its launch. The Galaxy S5 has been launched in 125 countries worldwide, so huge launch day sales numbers have been expected.
