Samsung CEO and head of mobile JK Shin has given out some figures concerning the company’s newest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S 5. The Galaxy S devices have always been good sellers for the South Korean outfit but their most recent release is looking to outperform all of its predecessors, as Shin has said that the S 5 has managed to reach sales of 11 million smartphones in the first month of its release to the market.

The previous best sales seen by Samsung have been for the Galaxy S 4, which crossed the 10 million units sold mark in its first month. Shin, speaking to the Wall Street Journal, has said that “It’s been a month since we began selling the S5, and out of the gate, sales are much stronger than the Galaxy S 4.”

Samsung is attributing the improved sales to a more structured launch strategy for their flagship, which partnered up with several major carriers around the 125 launch countries.

The only question now is: how will Samsung’s next major mobile device manage to top this?
