The Galaxy S II within just a few months of release has already sold 10 million units which has set a new record for Samsung
Samsung has announced that it has sold more than 30 million Galaxy S and Galaxy S II Android smartphones globally. Extremely impressive in a mobile landscape that is seemingly dominated by Apple's iPhone.
While great news for the manufacturer, the move is hardly a suprise as Samsung announced in late September that it had already sold a total of 10 million units of the Galaxy S II, which recently made its debut in the United States on T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T.
"Since its launch only five months ago, Galaxy S II has seen tremendous sales success and garnered enthusiastic reviews from consumers and mobile industry watchers across the globe. This is in addition to the continued sales momentum behind Galaxy S, which we launched at Mobile World Congress 2010 as continues to be a run-away success with consumers," JK Shin, president and head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business, said in a statement.
The Galaxy S II made its debut at Mobile World Congress 2011, and Samsung sold more than 3 million units in its first 55 days on the global market. In late August, the manufacturer finally announced that the device would be coming to American carriers AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile (but not Verizon). The Galaxy S, meanwhile, was released last year on various carriers: as the Captivate, Fascinate, the Vibrant, and the Epic 4G.
