Samsung Galaxy S II outselling iPhone 4 in the UK

Launched in the UK earlier this month, the new Samsung Galaxy S II has quickly become the country’s most popular smartphone.

Just like we told you it happened in South Korea, the Galaxy S II is outselling Apple’s iPhone 4 in the UK, too. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, iPhone 4 was introduced almost one year ago, in June 2010, so it’s not really a direct competitor to the Galaxy S II.

If anything, Galaxy S II sales should be compared to HTC Sensation sales. The Sensation – which has features similar to the ones the S II comes with – was released in the UK less than ten days ago, and is currently available only via Vodafone (and yet it’s on the third place in the top 5 best selling smartphones).

Other two HTC Android handsets – the Desire and Desire S – complete the top 5:

As previously reported, Samsung expects to sell more than 10 million Galaxy S II units around the world. And it will probably do it, especially since the new smartphone is going to be launched in the US soon – where the first Galaxy S was / is wildly popular.

    Will be interesting to see how it fares in Australia. Right now the S2 only available through one carrier whereas the IPhone 4 is with 5, but come July things will change as all carriers start carrying the S2.
