Samsung Electronics said that domestic sales of its new flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21, surpassed 1 million units last week.

The South Korean tech giant said the S21, which was released here on January 29, achieved the milestone 57 days after its launch, about one-month faster than its predecessor, the S20.

But the pace of S21 sales was slower than the S10, which topped the 1 million mark in 47 days in 2019.
