While we wrote earlier today that Apple cuts orders for iPhone parts due to weak demand, the Korean company’s popular line of Galaxy S smartphones has recently reached a major milestone, crossing the 100 million unit mark in less than three years. Samsung posted the above image on its Flickr account.

Samsung Electronics’ flagship Galaxy S series surpassed the accumulated sales record of 100 million units from the supply side in only 2 years and 7 months after its launch in May 2010. Galaxy S III is selling at much faster rate of 30 million in 5 months and 40 million in 7 months, after becoming a million seller in only 50 days after its release last May. Currently, its average daily sales are 190,000 units. The driving force behind Samsung Electronics’ rise to the top on the global smartphone market is Galaxy S II which is gaining ground as a steady seller hitting the sales of over 40 million in only 20 months.

Apple is averaging 29 million iPhone sales per quarter right now. But for a line of Android handsets, in a sea of Android handsets, they’re very impressive.

Samsung’s clearly found a way to set itself apart from the other Android manufacturers, and even Apple. The latest ComScore data shows that it has at least a 10% lead in US mobile marketshare over everyone else.
