Samsung announced that the Korean electronics giant has sold over ten million Galaxy S II smartphones with five million in just eight weeks.
The high end Android smartphone was launched worldwide back in May but has recently gathered renewed attention as the US-dominated tech press cover the recent North American launch of the dual-core device.
Samsung’s previous Galaxy S took over seven months to reach ten million and the previous device was launched into the North American market sooner after the worldwide debut than the Galaxy S II.
No sooner has the Galaxy S II launched in the US than Samsung announced the next generation of devices in Korea called the Galaxy S2 LTE and S2 HD LTE.
Aside from adding the next-generation mobile radio technology LTE, the HD version of the handset will offer a massive 4.65-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display.
Both will be based on 1.5GHz dual-core processors, come equipped with NFC hardware and support for 1080p HDMI video output.
There’s no indication of when the devices will launch outside of Korea. Pictures and (some) specs can be found here.
