The world’s second largest mobile phone maker has shipped more than five million units of its much flaunted smartphone – the Galaxy S2. It looks like the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S will play a key role in bumping Samsung up to first place, in a race against Apple to become the top smartphone vendor.
Apple Inc. reported selling 20.34 million units of its flagship smartphone – the iPhone 4 in the April-June Quarter as opposed to 16.7 million smartphone units shipped by Samsung.
Samsung has also divulged plans to release the Android device in 120 countries worldwide, and that it aims to sell 10 million units. The ten million mark looks pretty feasible to us, considering the fact that the phone has not yet been released in the U.S.
Additionally, the device reached the five million mark in forty days fewer than its predecessor (That’s the number of devices shipped to vendors, not the actual number of devices activated. Not that it makes the figures any less awesome.). The Galaxy S2 is set to debut in the U.S sometime in August.
