Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced that the Samsung GALAXY S II (Model: GT-I9100) has passed the 5 million global sales milestone.

The GALAXY S II is Samsung’s flagship smartphone device; a beautifully thin, (8.49mm) and lightweight dual-core smartphone that combines an unmatched Super AMOLED Plus viewing experience with incredible performance, all on Android – the world’s fastest-growing mobile operating system. The next generation smartphone also includes exclusive access to Samsung’s four new content and entertainment hubs, seamlessly integrated to provide instant access to music, games, e-reading and social networking services. 

The 5 million mark has been reached in just 85 days, 40 days faster compared to the time the GALAXY S took to reach the same sales mark. This rate is set to accelerate as Samsung has just launched GALAXY S II in China, the world’s largest market.

“In just a few months the GALAXY S II has led the way in driving Samsung’s unmatched performance in the smartphone industry” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business. “Since being launched into the retail market in late April, the GALAXY S II has seen tremendous growth. This reflects the strong support from carrier partners globally, who in choosing the GALAXY S II as their flagship device have reaffirmed the device’s status as a premium, market-defining smartphone.”

“Based on industry reports, Samsung GALAXY S II is the best-selling Android smartphone currently available in the market,” said Ashraf Fawakherji, General Manager of Samsung Gulf Electronics Telecommunication Group. “Samsung recently launched the GALAXY S II in the regional markets and we are positive that with this launch, we will gain the leadership position in the smartphone category across the region.”
