Samsung is currently head of the Android camp when it comes to selling its goods and that’s in no small smart thanks to the success of its Galaxy S series and the current flagship, the Galaxy S II handset. Now we can put a number on that success, with Samsung announcing that it has sold over 20 million Galaxy S II units in the ten months since the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus smartphone has been in around. The Galaxy S II was announced at MWC 2011 in February and launched in late April last year in Asia, it was available in most European countries by May but only reached the US last September.
It’s no wonder that people are already talking of a successor. Samsung debunked early rumors that we might be seeing a Galaxy S III at MWC this year, though by all indications we should be expecting an announcement sometime in the first half of the year.
