Samsung has done it again. This time it is with their second edition of their prestigious Galaxy Smartphones. Last year the Samsung Galaxy S went into hastened sales breaking all the records for smartphones around the globe. And now, sales estimates say that the Galaxy S II is following the same route.
It was just a while ago we heard Samsung had sold 1 million units of the S II. The figures say that Samsung has sold 1 million in their home country South Korea alone. Samsung revealed details of the 1 million Galaxy S II handsets that went on sale in South Korea from April 29. According to the data available, carrier SK Telecom activated more than half a million Galaxy S II phones (550,000 to be precise), while KT sold 300,000 units. LG U+ sold 150,000 units.
To refresh you on the specs, the phone comes with, the Galaxy SII boasts of a 4.27-inch 800 x 480 unique Super AMOLED Plus display, an 8 mega pixel primary camera with 1080p video capture accompanied by a 2 mega pixel cam up front, Android Gingerbread with TouchWiz 4.0, and a dual-core 1GHz Samsung chip plus 1GB of RAM.
It may be seen that Samsung’s global launch strategy and their scheme of launching the device on multiple carriers in a single country have made the difference. They are hopefully looking at the US market to exponentially increase their sales which is most likely to happen.
