Samsung Galaxy S and S II Smartphones Touch 30M Sales Mark

October 17, 2011, By Leo Xavier

You might already know that Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphone family is a favourite around the world. The original Galaxy S appears to have done well on the smartphone market, but the follow-up to that device has gone far better.

Samsung has just officially announced that the company has sold 30 million units of their Galaxy S II and Galaxy S smartphones globally.

As you might know, the Galaxy S smartphone has been around since June 2010. According to Samsung, the company has sold 20 million units of the device in just 16 months. That is definitely impressive.

 

But it has taken the successor to the original Galaxy S only a few months to reach the 10 million mark. The total of 30 million units makes this one of the most popular smartphone series around the world.

Samsung says that the success of the S II has become a reality all thanks to the Super AMOLED screen and speedy APU (Accelerated Processing unit).

And those who have used the device will agree that features such as the 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 16GB memory, an 8-megapixel rear facing camera and a 2-megapixel front snapper, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and HSPA + have also contributed to its success.

Apparently, the S II is Korea’s second most popular smartphone and is the most popular device in at least ten other countries.

So, what do you think? How long will it take for S II to reach the 20 million mark?
