A global smart buzzword, Galaxy S 2 set a record of 3 million global sales only in 55 days.

Samsung Electronics said on July 3 that its flagship smartphone Galaxy S 2 has marked the accumulated global sales of 3 million units, 55 days after its initial release: Within the period, a unit of Galaxy S 2 was sold in every 1. 5 seconds. This record shortens the record of 85 days of its predecessor Galaxy S, a ten-million global seller, by 30 days.

Samsung Electronics has dramatically increased its mobile market share in Europe, owing to the Galaxy S 2 smartholics there. In the UK where the local major reviewer Uswitch.com selected Galaxy S 2 as the best mobile phone in May and June, Samsung Electronics has become the most sold mobile brand for straight 17 weeks.

In Austria, Galaxy S 2 jumped into the fourth place on the smartphone hit-list, right after its release. In Switzerland, it spearheaded into the third. Owing to the fast-growing popularity of Galaxy S 2, Samsung Electronics topped the Austrian smartphone market with the market share of 30 percent. It also seized 36 percent of the smartphone market in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics held the launching events of Galaxy S 2 in Mexico and Brazil on June 30 to spread its ‘smart’ frenzies to Latin America.
