Samsung reveals global Galaxy sales numbers: 200 million served so far

That number looks even bigger spelled out

Samsung revealed during its Samsung Unpacked keynote at MWC 2014 that it's sold 200 million Galaxy devices around the world so far.

The figure came from the mouth of Samsung's Head of Mobile Communications, President and CEO JK Shin, just before he unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S5.

"I truly appreciate the 200 million customers around the world who have chosen our Galaxy devices," Shin said.

Leading up to the Galaxy S5 reveal, he continued, "Our consumers do not want eye-popping technology or the most complex technology. our consumers want beautiful design and performance. Our consumers want a simple yet powerful camera. Our consumers want faster and seamless connectivity. And our consumers want a phone that can help them stay fit."

The presentation opened with a lengthy orchestra concert and an intro video that showed attractive-looking people working out, getting married and biking through New York while using Samsung products.

Samsung also took this opportunity to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit.

But the company spent most of its time describing the new features of the Galaxy S5, with a focus on fitness and the phone's camera. Samsung Vice President of European Telecommunications Operations Jean-Daniel Ayme said it has the fastest auto-focus of any smartphone.

In addition, Samsung is upgrading the original Galaxy Gear to Tizen OS.
