A man walks by a billboard of Samsung Electronics’s Galaxy Note II at a showroom of its headquarters in Seoul, South Korea, Friday, Oct. 5, 2012. Samsung Electronics Co. tipped all-time high quarterly operating profit, likely driven by strong sales of high-end smartphones that offset weak semiconductor orders. AP

SEOUL, South Korea—Samsung Electronics Co. says it has sold more than 3 million Galaxy Note II smartphones in a little over a month since its launch.

The South Korean firm said Friday sales of the oversize smartphone reached the figure 37 days after its September release.

The Note II is one of the two key mobile devices from Samsung on the high-end smartphone market. It features an oversize screen that measures 5.5 inch diagonally and a digital pen for note-taking.

Research firm IDC estimates Samsung topped the global smartphone market in the July-September third quarter with 56.3 million sales, more than double Apple’s 26.9 iPhone sales.
