Samsung's Galaxy S III isn't due for launch until May 30th, but it has already received nine million pre-orders in little over two weeks since the unveiling, according to the Korea Economic Daily – via Reuters.

The figure spans across over 100 operators globally, while the South Korean Samsung factory is currently at full capacity producing five million units per month.

It's the third flagship smartphone from Samsung and arguably features the most high-end tech yet, with a Siri-like S-Voice assistant and image recognition functionality.

If the story is true, it looks set to outpace the previous Galaxy S and S II, which took seven and five months respectively to reach ten million sales.
