Samsung sells 10 million Galaxy S II mobile phones

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced its flagship Android Galaxy S II handset has reached ten million sales worldwide, since the device began shipping in April this year.

This news comes only a short time after the Samsung Galaxy S II went on sale last month in America, where in July the company made public sales of the phone had hit the eight million mark - in just 85 days.

The new figure of 10 million was reached eight weeks after Samsung hit five million sales, with the doubling of the global sales numbers showing just how popular the successor to last year's Samsung Galaxy S now really is.

“In just five months the GALAXY S II has seen tremendous growth, reflecting its tremendous popularity with customers around the world, who in selecting the GALAXY S II as their device of choice have driven the device’s strong market position globally.” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business.

Samsung's Galaxy S II arrives in a 8.49mm thin chassis with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED plus screen, whilst powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3 and the TouchWiz 4 overlay to that platform.
