Five million units of Samsung‘s Galaxy Note II have been sold worldwide, the company has announced.

The milestone comes exactly two months after the device was launched globally, on September 26, 2012. It took approximately a month for Samsung to sell the first three million units, and sales are obviously still going strong after Samsung brought the device to the U.S. on October 24.

The Galaxy Note II is a 5.5-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid with a stylus. It sports a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (further expandable to 128GB via memory cards).

With 5 million units moved in only two months, there’s no question of its success on the market. This success probably did not sit well with Apple, which recently added the Galaxy Note II along with five other devices to its ongoing patent lawsuit with Samsung.
