Galaxy S II hits 3 million sales


En route to topple the first out-of-this-world flagship handset

South Korean electronics conglomerate Samsung has announced it has had orders of more than 3 million Galaxy S II mobile phones, with that figure being reached even before the handset had arrived on the shelves on May 1st.

Samsung’s Galaxy S II is both the company’s slimmest and lightest smartphone yet, along with the first handset to offer a Super AMOLED Plus screen – which is the largest and brightest display available in Samsung’s arsenal of devices.

The 10 million plus best-selling Galaxy S successor runs from a dual-core processor, with Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 and a 4.27-inch 480×800 WVGA Super AMOLED Plus screen.

The phone has a similar look to the original phone, only with a larger screen and thinner 8.9mm body with a great deal more under the hood than just different aesthetics.

The 1.2Ghz dual-core beefiness of the handset also comes with an advanced HSPA+ 21 wireless network, with the individual cores being powerful enough to deliver good multi-tasking and 3D hardware abilities.

On-board is an 8 megapixel camera that’s capable of 1080p video recording and playback, a significant increase from the 5 MP variant found on the first handset that only featured 720p video capture with Froyo.

One Mobile Ring caught up with the Samsung Galaxy S II at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we published a hands-on walkthrough in pictures here and a video here – where we’ve recently taken stock of the device, for a more detailed walk-through here and a review here.
