If you're sitting around waiting anxiously for Samsung to release its third generation Galaxy smartphone, you're in good company. In fact, according to reports, some 9 million people have already pre-ordered Samsung's Galaxy III device from over a 100 carriers around the world, a great indication that it's likely going to be a big success.

The Korea Economic Daily first reported the pre-order figure, according to Reuters, while also adding that Samsung's smartphone plant in South Korea is churning out as many smartphones as it possibly can, at a clip of 5 million per month.

In case you need a refresher, the Galaxy S III sports a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor with a GPU that's supposed to be two-thirds faster than the Mali 400 chip in the Galaxy S II (the U.S. version will ship with a dual-core processor), 1GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera, and various other odds and ends.

Crazy thing on this one is it has already hit the FCC for T-MOUS approval which would seemingly allude to them having it first and relatively soon. The GSII has not been here 6 months yet has it!
