At the end of September 2011, Samsung announced that it sold 10 million Galaxy S II i9100 handsets around the world. Now, five months later and 10 months after the device was first launched, the South Korea giant unveiled that the total number of S II units shipped has reached 20 million.
The Galaxy S II is currently available pretty much anywhere in the world, including in major markets like China, India and the US (where AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are selling slightly different versions of it).
Together, the first Galaxy S (i9000) and the Galaxy S II i9100 have been sold in more than 40 million units.
Next month, possibly on March 15, Samsung will likely announce the third-generation Galaxy S, most probably called Samsung Galaxy S III. I’m pretty sure this one will sell very well, too.
