galaxy_s2-sales As the title of the post says, Samsung have just issued a press release stating that their flagship Android Superphone has already seen it’s 3 millionth sale. What’s even more staggering is that it achieved that lofty milestone in just 55 days, that’s day quicker than its Galaxy S predecessor.

An impressive achievement that is for sure but it’s perhaps not that surprising being the first there with the Dual-core CPU it’s performance is certainly very impressive as we detailed in our Samsung Galaxy S2 review back in May of this year, it remains one of our top picks.

Excerpts from Samsung’s official press release follow:


A global smart buzzword, Galaxy S 2 set a record of 3 million global sales only in 55 days.

Samsung Electronics said on July 3 that its flagship smartphone Galaxy S 2 has marked the accumulated global sales of 3 million units, 55 days after its initial release: Within the period, a unit of Galaxy S 2 was sold in every 1. 5 seconds. This record shortens the record of 85 days of its predecessor Galaxy S, a ten-million global seller, by 30 days.

Samsung Electronics has dramatically increased its mobile market share in Europe, owing to the Galaxy S 2 smartholics there. In the UK, Samsung Electronics has become the most sold mobile brand for straight 17 weeks, where the local major reviewer selected it as the best mobile phone in May and June.

In Austria, Galaxy S 2 jumped into the fourth place on the smartphone hit-list, right after its release. In Switzerland, it spearheaded into the third. Owing to the fast-growing popularity of Galaxy S 2, Samsung Electronics topped the Austrian smartphone market with the market share of 30 percent. It also seized 36 percent of the smartphone market in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics held the launching events of Galaxy S 2 in Maxico and Brazil on June 30 to spread its ‘smart’ frenzies to Latin America.
