Since the Galaxy S II’s (Model: GT-I9100) launch in April of this year, Samsung has managed to hit ten million global channel sales for the device. This is pretty impressive since the device hasn’t even started to make it’s mark in the U.S. yet. With the Epic 4G Touch from Sprint is out now with AT&T and T-Mobile’s version to hit soon, I’d expect these numbers to be even more impressive through the fall and holiday season. There’s no question that the Galaxy S II has been turning heads and Samsung knows it. Check out the full press release after the break.
