Launched in May in its local market of South Korea – with Samsung highlighting its excellent reception, the device was able to quickly pass through more than one million shipped units before being launched in various European markets in June.
5 million in three months Helped by the performance of the top of the line Smartphone and an impressive marketing campaign, more than 3 million devices were quickly sold by early July – making Samsung’s objective of selling 10 million units by the end of the year a possibility.
At the end of July, just after its appearance on the Chinese market and before its American launch – a major Smartphone’s market, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S2 has sold more than 5 million units.
