Samsung sells 30 million Galaxy S mobile phones

South Korean electronics company Samsung has released the sales figures for their Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S II handsets, which have achieved a combined 30 million sales, globally.

This news comes after their latest flagship Samsung Galaxy S II reached 10 million sales back in September this year, where in July the mobile phone hit the 8 million mark and in just 85 days.

2010’s Samsung Galaxy S reached almost 20 million sales, making it the highest-selling mobile device in Samsung’s portfolio to date with the Galaxy S II generating more than 10 million sales – quicker than any device in Samsung’s history.

The Galaxy S launched two years ago to high critical acclaim and has still continued to gain popularity, which in turn has propelled this Galaxy brand to one of the most recognisable brands in the world.

‘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,” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business.
