Samsung confirms 3 million Galaxy S II pre-orders

Samsung says it managed to clinch a whopping three million Galaxy S II (global) pre-orders. 

The stats are a definite success for Samsung’s dual-core (1.2 GHz) Android-powered smartphone, which was snapped up by 120,000 South Korean customers in just a few days.

Although the corporation projected orders would eventually increase, initial expectations have clearly been exceeded.

As such, Samsung remains on track to sell at least 10 million Galaxy S II handsets in 2011.

The huge number of pre-orders for the Galaxy S II is likely due to the fact that the smartphone is one of the fastest on the market. Of course, the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display is another feature attracting customers like a magnet.

While demand for the handset may eventually decrease with the launch of HTC’s Sensation and Apple’s iPhone 5, one thing is certain: Samsung is experiencing massive growth in the smartphone segment.

Key Galaxy S II specs include:

  • Memory – 16GB/32GB
  • MicroSD (up to 32GB)
  • 8MP camera AF with LED Flash + 2MP Front
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • BT v3.0+HS
  • Android 2.3
  • HSPA+ 21Mbps/ HSUPA 5.76Mbps
  • EDGE/ GPRS Class 12
  • Quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900
  • Quad band UMTS 850/900/1900/2100
