The Samsung Galaxy S, which was released last year, was the most popular Android smartphone of 2010. Its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S 2, seems to be doing even better. We had earlier reported that the Samsung Galaxy S 2 had sold over 3 million units in about 55 days. That was a great milestone, and crossing it made the Galaxy S 2 the best selling Android phone of all time.
Today, according to a report by Yonhap News Agency, Samsung has stated that they have sold more than 5 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S 2. It has been less than 3 months since the initial debut of the Samsung Galaxy S 2, and it hasn’t even been launched in many major markets like the U.S. yet.
The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is the best Android smartphone yet, and comes with a 4.3 inch SuperAMOLED Plus display. It has an 8 MP camera and is powered by the 1.2 GHz dual core Exynos processor and 1 GB RAM. It runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, the latest version of the Android OS.
It is expected to be launched on all major carriers in the U.S. next month. That should increase the sales significantly, since the demand for the phone has been very high in almost all the regions it has been available in.
I expect the total sales to reach 10 million by the end of September.
