Reports indicate that Samsung has sold 3 mil. Galaxy S II smartphones worldwide in just 55 days. This achievement is a major threat for Apple’s popular smartphone market share. Not necessarily because of the record selling number, but because of its hardware configuration which is already ahead of iPhone with one generation at least.
Technically this is what Galaxy S II offers:
4.27-inch Super AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution; dual-core Samsung processor; 8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras; Android 2.3 (Gingerbread); 1080p video recording; Bluetooth 3.0+HS; and HSPA+ network support, etc.
With its latest product Samsung is following a three-mobile operating strategy that will lead to a broader range of clients compared to the exclusively single operating system strategy present in iPhone. There is no wonder that with a wider support from the American carriers, this smartphone can definitely become the hit of this year. But with so many bloggers and journalists truly dedicated to the iPhone, a stronger PR session is required from Samsung to win the American market.
