Samsung Electronics today announced that its Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy SII smartphones have achieved a combined total of 30 million global sales.
Galaxy SII has set a new record for Samsung, generating more than 10 million sales - quicker than any device in Samsung's history.
Launched in 2010, Samsung Galaxy S reached almost 20 million unit sales, making it the highest-selling mobile device in Samsung's portfolio to date, and another record-breaker for the company and the mobile market.
"Since its launch only five months ago, Galaxy SII has seen tremendous sales success and garnered enthusiastic reviews from consumers and mobile industry watchers across the globe. This is in addition to the continued sales momentum behind Galaxy S, which we launched at Mobile World Congress 2010 as continues to be a run-away success with consumers," said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business.
