Samsung Galaxy S2 racks up 20m sales

Samsung Galaxy S2 racks up 20m sales

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has racked up a staggering 20 million unit sales, sealing its rep as Android’s high watermark. So far, at least.

The S2 hit the landmark figure in just shy of 9 months, having launched in Europe in May last year. Sammy’s flagship phone did not land on some US networks until much later, suggesting that it could have hit 20 million a lot quicker.

Even so, the S2 is now officially the biggest-selling Samsung phone ever, overtaking its immediate predecessor the Galaxy S to seal the top spot.

News of the S2's showing in a crowded Android market comes as Sammy is expected to unveil a successor to the handset later this year.

Informally dubbed the S3, the S2 sequel is purported to improve on the current-gen model with a quad-core processor, a 12 megapixel camera and a longer-life battery.
