The original Samsung Galaxy S was released in 2010 and was widely accepted by millions of users around the world. The device itself was recognized by Google for becoming the first Android to reach the 10 million handset milestone, something that was accomplished in 7 short months. Since then, the Galaxy S II was launched and completely smashed through the 10 million mark in 5 months. Samsung has announced today that the combined total sales of these devices has now surpassed 30 million in global sales. As for numbers, the Galaxy S makes up for 66% with 20 million handsets and the Galaxy S II is standing still at 10 million units, representing 34%. The Galaxy S II results should dramatically increase as the device was recently released in the United States on several carriers, plus in Canada we’ll soon see TELUS release the Galaxy S II X and Rogers with the Galaxy S II LTE.
JK Shin of Samsung said “The phenomenal success of these smartphones once again demonstrates how the GALAXY S smartphones is setting the standard for smart mobile technology around the world.”
