iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Sells 20 Million Galaxy S2 In 10 Months

Samsung has announced that it has sold 20 million of its Galaxy S2 smartphone in 10 months.

The Korean company took three months to ship five million units and five months to reach the 10 million mark, which means that Samsung is still keeping the momentum.

In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S took seven months to reach the 10 million sale mark and the latest sale update pegged it at 22 million units sold globally.

One reason why the Galaxy S2 has been successful is that Samsung has pushed out new models like the 4G LTE models, models with bigger screens and higher display resolutions while still maintaining the S2 moniker.

The original S2 had a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB, a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive display, Wi-Fi, an eight-megapixel camera and at one point, claimed to be the thinnest phone on the planet.

The followup to the Galaxy S2, otherwise known as the S3, will be announced at an event in Amsterdam on the 15th of March.
