Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone sells like crazy in first three days

The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone is a cool device that many Android fans were looking forward to getting their hands on. We have known the full specs of the smartphone for a while now. The smartphone officially launched on April 28. The company sold a bunch of the smartphones in South Korea the first few days the device was available. The phone sales were so strong that more moved in the first few days that the original Galaxy S.

Industry sources claim that Samsung sold 120,000 units combined across the three major carriers in South Korea in three days. SK Telecom Co. activated 65,000 S II smartphones. KT Corp sold 40,000 of the phones and LG Uplus Corp moved 15,000 S II smartphones. LG Uplus is the smallest carrier that offers the phone. There is no indication at this point if the sales stayed high after the initial three days of availability.

The S II is an impressive little smartphone with an dual-core processor. The smartphone runs Android 2.3, it has WiFi, and a 8MP rear camera with a 2MP front camera. The screen is a 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus offering and the smartphone can be purchased with 16GB or 32GB of storage and has a microSD card slot too. That memory card slot supports up to 32GB cards and the phone has NFC tech inside too.

Update: Sorry about the specs on this, I obviously opened the wrong spec sheet on the initial story.

    “5MP camera. The screen is a 3.7-inch WVGA resolution offering.” ?
    It should say 8MP camera. The screen is a 4.27-inch WVGA resolution offering.

    Looks like you got some of the specs wrong, Shaun. It’s got an Super AMOLED Plus screen, which has a size of 4,27″, and it’s got an 8 MP camera, with LED flash. It also has a front-facing camera at 2 MP for video-conversations. I’m also pretty sure the Tegra 2 only has 1 GHz of dual-core power in the Galaxy S II, but the Exynos has 1,2 GHz dual-core processor.

    Ordered this phone yesterday (Norwegian version, Exynos), can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    wow “android” community can’t believe you got the specs of what appears to be the best Android phone out to date so wrong

    Thats a kick ass number for a virtually unadvertised phone in a launch that is less than global…..
    Its only 1/8th of the iphone 4′s first 48 hours.

    But we are comparing Apples only phone to one of 150 android phones that will launch during its life.

    When you put everything in perspective…wow.

    Most defiantly shaping up to keep Samsung at the top of the android smart phone sales ladder.

    It’s a real android phone that I’m waiting to purchase in many ways finally.
    I thank Samsung to produce a quality phone that I’ll enjoy using it every moment.
    I want to know what carries will provide with prices by contract options.

    I don’t understand why a tech news site with android in its name has specs wrong for THE most widely talked about phone being released, and ALREADY out across seas. You guys should really sit back and get serious, it seems like I know more information and more accurate information on a daily basis and I’m just an average consumer; a freshman in college, if you will.

    Get it together.
