Monday 09 May 2011
Local and international pre-orders for Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S II smartphone hit the 3 million milestone at the end of April.
"There are quite a few demands in some countries to ask for preferred orders for the supply of Galaxy S II," said officials from the Korean-based electronic manufacturer in a May 8 statement.
Limited supplies of the device started to arrive in selected countries in Europe and Asia in early May.
Samsung is confident that shipments of its Android-based flagship smartphone will reach a target of 10 million sales globally.
"We will do our utmost best to ensure that all the global demands should be met as quickly as possible," said Samsung.
In Korea, pre-orders for the smartphone reportedly exceeded those for Apple's iPhone 4.
According to technology website Electronista, Samsung sold around 200,000 pre-orders leading up to the Galaxy S II Korean launch while pre-orders for the iPhone 4 in Korea totalled around 110,000.
