Samsung Galaxy S II Hits 3 Million Pre-Orders Worldwide



Samsung has announced that its new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone has seen approximately 3 million pre-orders around the globe since it launched back at the end of April.

It’s no surprise that the Galaxy S II has seen this kind of popularity as it’s arguably the best phone to hit the market to date. Don’t believe us? Well, then just have a quick look at some of the specs that this beast employs.

It has a 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus  (Gorilla Glass) display (480 x 800), 1.2GHz dual-core XMM6260 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 8MP rear facing camera with 720p and 1080p video capture capabilities, 2MP front facing camera, Bluetooth 3.0, and a 1650 mAh LiIon battery.

Unfortunately, it’s rolling out in staggered fashion meaning it’s headed around the globe slowly. However, Samsung expects the device to be in 120 countries on a total of 140 different mobile carriers by the time the roll out is complete.

As for those in the United States hoping to get this device, it has been rumored to be coming to both AT&T and T-Mobile. And because that’s not official yet, no pre-order in the U.S. has been offered, which means that the 3 million figure you see here will likely skyrocket once the option is available.

    The Galaxy SII hasn’t even arrived yet in the US and I’m already considering waiting for the SIII – pretty much identical to the SII but with an aluminum body. I’ve read that it will be released by the end of the year; which sounds realistic if it is actually the same phone with a different body.

    I’m between assignments at home in the UK and received my sim-free SII on Saturday. Expensive (I need to be able to use local sim-cards in different countries, last month I finished a year-long assignment in Damascus, Syria), but awesome as my offspring and other younger folk like to describe something impressive.

    As someone in my mid 60s converting from WM 6.5, I’ve got lots to learn, but it’s so fascinating and even intuitive for this old dog. I’m not into games and gimmicks, I’m focusing on the personal productivity, communications and work-related apps.

    The screen is brilliant, literally, and I reckon I’ll defer an intended HTC Flyer tablet for several months to see if I really need a tablet – it MUST have palm rejection/writing capability.

    The version launched here is the 16 Gb one to which i have added a 32 Gb micro SDHC card, a rubberized protective case (it’s still a thin, light device) , and a Zagg screen protector.

    NOW I don’t have to be envious of my younger son’s iPhone when i meet him in the pub!

    A aluminium body version sounds nice, but you really don’t have to wait, get the SII when its hits your shores.
