Galaxy S II

Samsung has announced that it's sold 30 million Galaxy S phones worldwide since the series launched last April. At least a third of that number consists of sales of Samsung's latest and greatest dual-core smartphone, the Galaxy S II. As we reported last month, sales of that device now top 10 million worldwide.

With the Galaxy S II now available on three of the four major US carriers, that number's only going to increase in the months ahead. Samsung notes that the current figures show one Galaxy S II being sold every second since the device's international launch this Spring, which is pretty crazy.

More big numbers and superlatives can be found in today's full press release, after the jump.

Samsung Electronics said on Oct 17 that its flagship smartphones Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 marked the accumulated international sales of 30 million units.

Galaxy S, which has become Samsung’s representative smartphone brand, is just around the corner to hit 20 million sales. And Galaxy S2 which was introduced in last April set the fastest record to hit 10 million sales for Samsung phone (A Galaxy S2 has been sold in every second since its release) owing to its super-AMOLED display, super-fast application processor, optimized software and etc.

Galaxy S2 was also crowned as ‘Phone of the Year’ in major awards like Gadget Award 2011, Mobile Choice and Consumer Award 2011. Thanks to the international popularity of its Galaxy brothers, Samsung Electronics became the second most sold brand in the smartphone market in the second quarter of this year, and continues to lead major European markets including Germany, Italy and France.
