There’s cause for celebration over at Samsung Headquarters today as the Korean giants announced that the critically acclaimed Galaxy SII has hit a whopping 20 million sales worldwide. Perhaps even more impressive is the time in which it has taken Samsung to reach these heady heights. It took just short of 3 months to hit 5 million sales, 5 months to hit 10 million and 9 months to hit this most recent milestone. Not bad for a device that didn’t have a universal, worldwide launch date.
The prestigious ‘Galaxy’ name has proven to be a real golden ticket for Samsung with sales of all Galaxy labelled devices totalling well over 40 million. The appeal of the Galaxy name shows no sign of slowing in momentum, only today Samsung registered 4 new suffixes to tag on to the end of future devices. With the Galaxy S III looking to be arguably the most hotly anticipated Android phone of all time the future is looking extremely bright for Samsung and the Galaxy range in particular.
Samsung’s recent announcement that the world won’t see the unveiling of the new flagship phone at the Mobile World Congress leads me to believe that Samsung are timing the launch of the new device to steal some of the thunder from Apple’s iPhone 5 launch. What say you readers? Does the Galaxy name have the momentum to go toe-to-toe with Apple’s next big release? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
