Samsung’s dual core 4.3 inch beast, the Galaxy S II, was a device we instantly fell in love with after it was announced earlier this year in February at Mobile World Congress. The superphone houses a dual core processor, one of the most delicious 4.3 inch displays to ever hit the market, and best of all the South Korean handset maker didn’t fiddle too much with Android, whereas devices from Motorola and HTC often make us gag. It seems like we’re not the only ones who appreciate what the Galaxy S II has to offer since Samsung has just announced that they’ve smashed all previous company records by selling 3 million Galaxy S II units in just 55 days; it took the first Galaxy S an extra 30 days to reach those figures. So who’s buying up all these devices? Samsung says that a majority of customers are from Europe, which makes sense, since this thing hasn’t been launched in America … yet.
Rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S II will hit US shores in time for back to school season and it will be sold Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T. Now on American shores the Galaxy S II will have to compete with the likes of the iPhone and handful of Verizon 4G LTE enabled smartphones, but we think once shoppers walk inside a store and spend a few minutes playing with the Galaxy S II they’ll instantly fall in love with it. We can’t emphasize enough how crisp and beautiful that screen is, despite it being a lower resolution than that of the Apple iPhone 4.
When exactly will the Galaxy S II hit store shelves here in FreedomLand and how much will it cost? That information isn’t yet available, but stay tuned to IntoMobile to be the first to find out the latest details!
