Samsung Electronics says its Galaxy S II smartphone (also known as the GT-I9100) has passed the milestone of 5 million global sales in just 85 days. That’s 40 days faster than the original Galaxy S took to reach five million units.
JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business, said “In just a few months the Galaxy S II has led the way in driving Samsung’s unmatched performance in the smartphone industry. Since being launched into the retail market in late April, the Galaxy S II has seen tremendous growth. This reflects the strong support from carrier partners globally, who in choosing the Galaxy S II as their flagship device have reaffirmed the device’s status as a premium, market-defining Smartphone.”
