While we all had some suspicions of Samsung's Galaxy S II line being very successful, this release of information from Samsung pretty much confirms it. Samsung today announced that the Galaxy S II phones have been sold to over five million customers, or a staggering one-fourth of the phone-carrying South Korean population.
The company is calling the GS II series of phones the "national phone" for South Korea, which actually makes sense, considering Samsung is located in Seoul, South Korea, and has had an incredible impact on the country. It's one of the largest phone manufacturers in the world, obviously, and has seen success after success in the rest of the world.
Keep in mind that the five million phones that we're talking about here are the ones that were sold in South Korea alone; the rest of the world's numbers will come at a later time. I expect to see some even more staggering numbers when they come out.[Samsung (Translated)]
