Just like it did when it launched the original Galaxy S, Samsung wants to introduce the new Galaxy S II i9100 in lots of countries at about the same time. And it will do it: starting early May, the S II will be launched in no less than 120 countries, via 140 mobile carriers.
As of today, the Android 2.3 smarthpone is available in South Korea, via all three major carriers, for about $786.
Samsung expects to sell “at least 10 million” new Galaxy smartphones around the world, to match the success of the first model (sold in about 14 million units since July 2010).
The Galaxy S II will compete with smarthpones like Apple’s iPhone 4, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc, and HTC’s Sensation.
For the moment, there’s no word on which US carriers will offer the S II, but I assume Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will all want to have it.
