I’d say 30 million is a nice number, especially if you’re Samsung. The Galaxy S II has set a new record with over 10 million sales, at least a new record for Samsung anyway. It is the fastest selling device in Samsung history.


Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a leading mobile handset provider, 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. It continues to gain traction as Samsung’s flagship smartphone – a stylishly designed, slim and ultra-portable device combining an unrivalled viewing experience with powerful dual-core processor performance.

Launched in 2010, Samsung GALAXY S reached almost 20 million 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 launching to high critical acclaim two years ago, the GALAXY S range has continued to gain popularity among consumers and propelled the GALAXY brand to one of the most recognized mobile brands in the world.

“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 CTIA 2010 as continues to be a run-away success with consumers,” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business.


“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”, he added.



  1. Was it necessary to einertly disable the cell mode’ on Galaxy S 2?I have been using OpenSignalMaps on my S2 for a while now and I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately few days ago I performed an update'(downgrade?) which disabled the cell view mode. I thought the update somehow corrupted the app as the warning message saying the cell mode has been disabled appeared only after I cleared the app data in app management (not to mention the cell mode button is still visible, but not working which itself is a little confusing). Needless to say I was quite angry I spent some time trying to figure out what went wrong with the update.I understand that from OpenSignalMaps’ point of view a phone unable to report its signal strength is useless as it does not contribute to the map, however I would like to petition in favor of restoring the cell view for SGS2 anyway.My suggestion is that instead of einertly disabling cell view, the signal data sharing should be disabled until the bug is fixed.
