For the last two months, Samsung surprisingly sold 10 million units of their new Galaxy S II smartphones worldwide.
The Handset that handles Google Android system (which is under the patent infringement lawsuit against Apple Inc. for its Android tablets and phones) began selling the Android 2.3.4 “Gingerbread-based S II” in Korea last April.
The phone which features a 1.2 GHz dual processor and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED plus display screen, sold 1 million units in Korea in less than 1 month, and more or less 3 million units in just 55 days.
To prove that this news from Samsung isn’t just an anomaly, the company reported last July that they sold 5 million units of Galaxy II in 85 days, spanning in European countries, Japan and South Korea. This occurred before the phone was launched in the U.S.
The Korea-based company actually hit the 10 million sales mark with just minimal U.S. market sales, as the company’s Galaxy S II, epic 4G Touch from Sprint has been on the U.S. market since Sept. 16 only.
The new S II is different from the other existing S II units that feature a 4.52-inch display screen. EWEEK found that the Epic 4G Touch process apps smoothly and quickly.
AT&T will begin selling its own S II on Oct. 2, though T-Mobile has not yet announced when it will start selling its own S II.
