Samsung’s line of Galaxy S smartphones may very well hit the 10 million mark that the company predicted it’d sell by the end of the year.

InformationWeek reports that the Android-based Galaxy S series has sold 9.3 million units so far this year. For comparison, Apple’s latest sales numbers indicate that it’s sold 14 million iPhones this year.

The Galaxy S line has managed to outsell the iPhone line 2 million to 1.8 million in Samsung’s home country of Korea. And Samsung’s 7-inch Galaxy Tab Android tablet, which borrows certain aspects from the Galaxy S phones, has managed to sell 1 million units so far versus 7 million iPads sold.

The Galaxy S phones are available in several variations on all major carriers in the U.S., with Sprint’s Epic 4G, Verizon’s Fascinate, AT&T’s Captivate, and T-Mobile’s Vibrant being the first out of the gate earlier this year.
