Samsung has just announced that the Android-powered Galaxy S II has sold 10 million handsets worldwide, blowing past their previous record. Samsung stated in a press release that over the past 8 weeks they have doubled their sales from 5 million to 10 million. To put this into perspective, the original Galaxy S reached the 10 million mark in 7 months, the Galaxy S II has surpassed this milestone in just short 5 months. There’s no specific numbers for Canada, but other country sales are the following: South Korea has sold 3.6 million, 3.4 million in Europe and over 10 countries (probably including Canada) made up over 3 million.

JK Shin of Samsung said “Since its launch in late April 2011, the GALAXY S II has seen continued sales success, demonstrating Samsung’s industry-leading capabilities in – and commitment to – the smartphone market… In just five months the GALAXY S II has seen tremendous growth, reflecting its tremendous popularity with customers around the world, who in selecting the GALAXY S II as their device of choice have driven the device’s strong market position globally.”

In Canada, Bell, Virgin and SaskTel all sell the Galaxy S II. Rogers will be hopping on board soon with the LTE-enabled Galaxy S II, meanwhile TELUS is launching the powerful Galaxy S II X (Hercules) soon.

    It would be way more if they hadn’t dragged their heals releasing them in all the markets and all the carriers. ***Cough….hurry up rogers….cough….

      This is nothing, when QNX comes out in early 2013 they will sell out

    • Ryan Bidan

      Yeeee dats right biatches. All cause of me!

  • Mobilicity FTW

    Cuz the Samsung Galaxy S II is like the best phone right now.

    • Tim Henderson

      Uhhh where have you been, the BB Torch is still by the far the best phone available – it has BOTH touchscreen and keyboard.

    • Jerrik

      @Tim Henderson: I sense sarcasm.

  • DJM

    Makes sense. The SGSII is the best phone on the market.

  • Reg

    Considering that they have just released it in the US and Rogers and Telus are getting it soon, expect their sales to be even better. It helps that many would agree that our is the best phone on the market at the moment. (posting from my SG2!)

  • bob

    They could have sold much more if they released in the USA on time. And in Canada, on more providers.

    I was drunkenly playing with my buddies GS2 last night, #$%^ that thing is fast! Screens a beauty too, I couldn’t put it down.

    • Sheshawawa

      Are you sure you were playing with the phone.. or something else? LOl jk !

  • Jack

    I’m one of the 10 millions 🙂

  • KidCanada

    If only it had bbm, then the galaxy s2 would be in my hand now instead of the Torch 2. Yes I’m a bbm addict, I’ll admit.

    • bob

      You must like vendor lock-in.

  • Jerrik

    I can see why this statement would be true. There is nothing I can’t throw at my GS2 to bog it down. I can’t wait for the LTE version of this phone.

      You can’t wait to start paying 5x more* for data?

      *$45 for 1.5GB vs $30 for 6GB

    • Jerrik

      @roman129: This may get me some thumbs down; however, don’t punish me for stating my opinion. I’m all about performance. Getting up to 150 mbps on my phone is worth paying a little extra for superior performance. That must be just me, though.

    • Andy

      @roman129: How would you even know the data pricing??? Rogers stated the data pricing is for their data sticks. Never did they release data pricing for cellphones yet.

  • Cave Johnson

    So roughly 6 Billion dollars in revenues, prolly at least half of it in profit. Yeap, makes sense why Apple wants its ApplePie back and sues.

    Cave Johnson, signing out.

  • Tannis

    Is the Hercules going to be different from the S II?

    • Jerrik

      @Tannis: The Hercules has a bigger screen, faster network speeds up to 42 mbps, and NFC support. My GS2 from Bell only gets me up to 21 mbps with no NFC support.

  • saffant

    Exynos (Galaxy SII) > Scorpion (Hercules)

  • Jay

    Samsung is so sexy. iPhone is flaccid. I still love my HTC Desire

  • Vij

    I wonder where WebOS would be now if it was available on sweet hardware like the GSII…

  • Dylan K

    Waiting for the Slide. S II is a beast of a phone, doesn’t quell my thirst for a physical keyboard on an Android… with Rogers…

  • Ryan Bidan

    all cause of me!
