How do you best 10 million
14 million in sales of your flagship Galaxy S smartphone? Easy, do what
the movie studios do and launch a bigger-budget sequel to an even wider
audience. Samsung is holding a media day event in South Korea to
celebrate the domestic launch of its smokin' fastGalaxy S II. The dual-core 1.2GHz Gingerbread handset with 4.27-inch 800 x 480 pixel Super AMOLED Plus display, TouchWiz 4.0 UI, MHL port, and 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video is already on limited sale in the UK on its way to a 120 country / 140 carrier invasion -- that's plus 10 countries over the initial Galaxy S target.
Naturally, we expect variants of the S II, with and without NFC, to hit
all the US majors just like the Galaxy S did in its day. Stay tuned to
see if our very positive first impressions of this gorgeous 8.49-mm thick superphone carry over to the review which should be up later today.
