The Apple versus Samsung trial continues to bring to light some interesting information related to the internal operations of the two companies.
The latest events have led to the release of sales numbers for both Samsung and Apple’s smartphones and tablets in the United States from June 2010 to July 2012.
According to documents that were filed by lawyers of Samsung on Thursday, from June 2010 through June 2012, Samsung sold 21.25 million phones, generating $7.5 billion in revenue.
Sprint was Samsung’s best carrier partner for the Galaxy S line with both the Samsung Epic 4G (Galaxy S1) and the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch accounting for 1.9 million and 1.67 million units, in that order.
Samsung’s Epic 4G proved to be the biggest profit producer, gathering $855 million between Q3 of 2010 and Q2 of 2012. In short, Samsung sold 4.1 million Galaxy SII devices in that period of time when looking at all models across all carriers.
