Samsung announced on Monday that in its home market of Korea, the Galaxy S II has sold 2 million units in just 73 days. As a matter of comparison, that is about twice the pace that its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S, sold at in Korea. That device ended up selling 3.2 million units, a number that the Galaxy S II is expected to beat easily. Once the phone is launched in all of its planned destinations, it is expected that 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be purchased.
As we reported, Verizon is expected to be the first U.S. carrier to offer the device which will be known as the Samsung Function. We could see this released as soon as August 14th.
