Who said no one wants a 5.5-inch smartphone? Not Samsung. The Korean company has this morning announced that its new Galaxy Note II has sold a whopping 3 million units in just 37 days of availability.

Samsung first announced the device back in August, and it went on sale in September. It’s been steadily making its way to new markets the world over ever since then, and it’s quickly being snapped up by Android users who can’t wait to get their hands on this year’s hottest “phablet.”

Samsung is estimated to have sold around 56 million smartphones during the third quarter of 2012, so the Galaxy Note II is still a relatively small product in comparison with its siblings — especially the Galaxy S III, which is expected to hit 30 million sales by the end of this year.

However, it’s is already selling faster than its predecessor, the first-generation Galaxy Note, which took almost two months to reach 1 million sales. Samsung expected the Galaxy Note II to sell around double the units of its predecessor, but it has already exceeded those expectations.
