Korean tech company Samsung has recently announced that sales of its Galaxy S II Android smartphone have reached the 5 million mark in just 85 days after its launch in Europe and Asia.
Last year’s Galaxy S smartphones took 125 days to sell 5 million units, with Samsung selling a total of 10 million Galaxy S phones last year. This time, it looks like their new Android-powered smartphone is going to perform better than they expected.
The company aims to sell at least 10 million Galaxy S II units in 2011, but considering that it has already reached the 5 million mark without having any presence in the American market, it is evident that the company will go over the 10 million mark.
“Since being launched into the retail market in late April, the Galaxy S II has seen tremendous growth,” said JK Shin, Samsung’s head of mobile communications business, in a statement.
Last week, Samsung announced that the Galaxy S II smartphone will finally hit the U.S. in August, but no specific release date has been said. Experts are expecting it to be available across all four major American carriers, just like its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone is very thin at 8.49 mm, and it uses the Super AMOLED plus technology for its display. It runs on a dual-core 1 GHz processor and is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
