In 55 Days, Samsung Sells 3 Million Galaxy S II Phones

Posted by at 8:01 pm on July 3, 2011

Samsung on Sunday crossed a company record by selling three million Galaxy S II phones in 55 days. The Android flagship hit its milestone 30 days faster than the original Galaxy S. At its peak, Galaxy S II phones have been selling at a rate of one every 1.5 seconds.

Much of that success comes from Europe, Samsung said. The dual-core device “dramatically increased’ Samsung’s phone market share in the continent. Austria and Switzerland were the highlights regardless of devices: at 30 percent and 36 percent of the smartphone market in each country, the Korean badge was out in front. Samsung has also been the top smartphone label in the UK for the past 17 weeks, although only a few of those could have been affected by the Galaxy S II.

The company now expects to get to the 10 million mark sooner than for the original Galaxy S. Its full hand also hasn’t been played yet as the company is widely if unofficially known to be bringing the Galaxy S II to the US in the summer. A significant part of Samsung’s international expansion for the phone also has yet to take root.
