Samsung claims three million pre-orders in place for Galaxy S II

Samsung has today issued some data about its Galaxy S II Android phone, claiming that, around the world, three million of the hot new mobile phones have been ordered in by retailers as of the end of April.

That sounds like a lot. We can only count up to about 1000 before getting bored. Here’s a woman in the Galaxy S II factory:

galaxy s 2 pre-orders

What a great photo. She’s wearing gloves with one finger missing for checking the touchscreens. And she can do two at once. Or maybe one’s a special reference model she compares the others against? So many more questions than answers.

Here’s the announcement. It comes via the Korean office, so is a little bit oddly worded:

Samsung Galaxy S2 Has Reached the Mark of 3,000,000 Pre-orders Globally

Samsung Electronics’ flagship smartphone Galaxy S II is becoming a global buzzword right after its release. Samsung Electronics said that its newest smartphone Galaxy S ll has reached 3,000,000 pre-orders globally as of the end of April.

The number of the pre-orders seems very likely to increase as Galaxy S ll is planned to release in 120 countries by some 140 carriers. IT product review channel Engadget praised Galaxy S II as “the best Android smartphone yet, but more importantly, it might well be the best smartphone.” Another IT channel Slashgear also reviewed that Galaxy S II’s 4.3 Inch Super AMOLED Plus is the most advanced OLED Panel technology.

Officials at Samsung Electronics mentioned that “There are quite a few demands in some countries to ask for preferred orders for the supply of Galaxy S II,“ adding that “We will do our utmost best to ensure that all the global demands should be met as quickly as possible.”

  1. makes me wonder why Samsung is bothering with all the other “variants” of the Galaxy line or similar–keep costs down by producing one really good product and marketing it.

      not sure what your on about but in europe they only have 1 galaxy s phone??

      there was one or 2 low range galaxy phones last year to go with the original galaxy s, but they were low range low budget phones not competing with the galaxy s? so dont know what your on about with that statement.
