For the Q3 2012, the Galaxy S III outsold the Apple iPhone 4S by a significant margin. Samsung saw 18 million sales compared to Apple's 16.2 million.
That being said, however, Samsung's device is much newer than the 4S, and Apple was on the verge of releasing the iPhone 5, leading to smaller sales than usual. The iPhone 5 already reached 6 million sales before the end of the quarter.
Samsung has sold 33 million of the flagship, including 10 million in the last two months.
Apple is expected to reclaim the title in the fourth quarter thanks to its global iPhone 5 launch.
