The Samsung Galaxy S Android phone has sold five million units since launching in June, the South Korean phone maker has confirmed, as the march of Google’s platform continues unabated.
The handset maker announced its flagship handset hit the landmark in a business release, in which it also forecast a further five million sales in the next quarter and total sales of around 25 million.
Samsung has also officially launched the second handset to use its proprietary plaform Bada, the Wave 2 in Germany, suggesting that the phone, which was first unveiled back in June, could yet get a UK release.
Features of the Wave 2 include a 3.7-inch, Super Clear LCD touchscreen, a 1GHz processor, plus a five megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and HD video recording.
Also onboard is a microSD card slot for expanding storage capacity by up to 32GB, GPS support and HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity.
