Galaxy S II becomes Samsung’s fastest-selling smartphone, tops 3 million units in 55 days

Samsung on Sunday announced that its Galaxy S II smartphone has quickly become the fastest-selling smartphone in the South Korean technology giant’s history. Shipments of the company’s new superphone have topped 3 million units in just 55 days, meaning Samsung has shipped an average of more than 54,545 Galaxy S II smartphones each day since its release. Impressively, Samsung achieved the feat before the device even launched in the U.S., one of the company’s top markets for its original Galaxy S smartphone — which took 85 days to reach the same 3 million-device milestone. “Announced at Mobile World Congress 2011, the GALAXY S II represents our most advanced smartphone to date and demonstrates Samsung’s commitment to deliver premium, market-defining devices,” said Samsung’s mobile boss, J. K. Shin, in a statement. “This milestone reflects the continued strong support from our carrier partners around the world who have chosen the GALAXY S II as their flagship Android device.” Samsung’s full note to the press follows below.
