The Korean mobile-phone maker said yesterday that it sold more than 5 million units of the Galaxy S II in the 85 days following its debut. Announcing the sales on its Samsung Tomorrow page (Google Translate English version), Samsung said that the phone has captured the top market share among more than 10 countries in Europe.
In comparison, the original Galaxy S took 125 days to reach the same 5-million-unit sales mark.
The GS II launched in its home base of South Korea on April 29 before reaching Japan and several European countries in May. The popular phone claimed more than 3 million in unit sales just one month after its release, according to Samsung, with 2 million selling in some of the larger markets."
