Samsung's Galaxy S4 is still selling extremely well, a new report out of Korea claims.

Samsung has sold 20 million Galaxy S4 units worldwide since that device's launch two months ago, Korea-based news outlet Yonhap News is reporting (Translate Page). That's roughly 1.7 times faster than sales of the Galaxy S3 (that's global channel sales, not sales to consumers) at the same point in that device's life cycle.

The news comes just a handful of weeks after Samsung announced that it had sold 10 million Galaxy S4 units in one month , easily outpacing sales of its Galaxy S3. If the sales pace keeps up, the Galaxy S4 could go down as the most popular smartphone from Samsung.

Samsung has yet to confirm that it has sold 20 million units. The company will hold its earnings call later this week, and could announce the sales milestone at that time.
