Sammy plans to sell 10 million Samsung Galaxy S II units this year
Sammy had a ten million units target for the Samsung Galaxy S last year, too, and it was met right after the holidays; the company has sold about 14 million of last year's Android hit to date. It's totally achievable, provided they roll out the SGS II in subsidized form with carriers worldwide as soon as possible, because we are playing around with one in the office, and it is really the Android phone to beat this year. Unless, of course, you have baby hands, but that's a topic we'll discuss in the review.
The interesting part is the rumor that Eldar Murtazin spread this week in regards to the Apple-Samsung lawsuit, about a Samsung Galaxy S3 upgrade that is coming late fall, with 4.5" edge-to-edge Super AMOLED Plus display of high resolution, and no hardware keys. These same features Apple is said planning to introduce in the iPhone 6, which will appear many months after the SGS 3, which must have annoyed Cupertino to no end.
If true, this will leave the Samsung Galaxy S II just about six months to achieve the ten million quota, but it's nice to have goals. Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy S managed to pull this off last year.
