The Samsung Galaxy S2 has sold three million units since launch, Samsung has announced, becoming the South Korean phone maker’s fastest-selling handset ever.
Sammy’s Android powered flagship phone hit the landmark figure within 55 days. That equates to two of the handsets being sold every two seconds.
By way of comparison, its predecessor the Galaxy S took 85 days to rack up those sort of numbers.
The S2 has achieved the figure despite the fact that it is yet to go on sale on networks in the US, where consumers’ zeal for Android phones is peaking right now.
Samsung is also likely to have had to overcome component supply shortages stemming from the Japanese earthquake disaster, which caused delays to key releases from Sony Ericsson earlier this year.
Widely regarded as the pick of this year’s Android crop, the S2 packs Gingerbread, aka Android 2.3, out of the box, plus dual snappers and a 4.3-inch SuperAMOLED display.
US smartfans are expected to be able to get their hands on the S2 later this summer.
