Samsung Galaxy S II sales top 5 million in Korea

Samsung Galaxy S II sales top 5 million in Korea
The Samsung Galaxy S II is definitely the best selling high-end Android device over the last year and it has reached yet another milestone - 5 million units sold in Korea alone. Previously, The anouncement comes just before Samsung releases its Holiday quarter results and promises to show up in the financials. 

Basically, this means that nearly one in 10 Koreans now owns a Galaxy S II.

Previously, Samsung reported 10 million Galaxy S II’s sold worldwide, with 3.5 million of them sold in Korea. Now, nearly three months after that announcement, the figure has jumped by 1.5 million units for Korea alone. This means that each month, Samsung managed to sell around 500,000 units of the Gingerbread-running Galaxy S II in its home country. The number reflects only sales to distributors, though, not to end-customers.

Samsung is Korea’s biggest phone maker and dominates the local smartphone market with 53% share.

Well this shouldn't be news, the Samsung Galaxy S II is just a fantastic well made phone. This is to be expected. Now my mouth is watering for a edge to edge 4.65" Super AMOLED+ 720p HD screen with Gorilla Glass 2, 1.5 to 2.0GHz 32 to 28nm quad-core Exynos processor, 1.5 to 2.0GB of RAM, 2800 to 3300mAh battery, 32GB of internal memory expandable up to 64GB micro SD card & a 12MP rear HD camera with a 3MP to 5MP 1080p HD front facing camera, all wrapped in some sexy body. The Samsung Galaxy S III. Wow can we imagine such a breast? The way tech is evolving YES I CAN!

..and super android evo.. how old are you? a 5mp front facing camera is obviously one of a high definition. and now tell me what would you need a 5mp front camera for?

Older than you, someone who is thinking about 1080p HD video conferencing on a 4G LTE network. How old are you, that you don’t think that 5MP front facing camera for 1080p HD Video conferencing would be needed? Heck I would take 720p at this point. For work I use my GNex's Video Conferencing over Tango to talk to my colleagues in different states almost all the time. I use my Google plus group conferencing a lot. Let the big boys talk here & go play with your little dolls ok. "now tell me what would you need a 5mp front camera for?" Really darac?!? Get a clue young man!

young man.. haha :) 5mpx front camera would be nice, but until LTE-Advance comes out, can you imagine all the lag that we would see from a 1080p cell teleconference? Think of the data bill!!! lol.

Do the math first. 2MP is the minimum MP required for full HD resolution. 5MP is not necessary for full HD video.

well android evo, big boy with little clue..I ask again, why 5mp? for a 2500x 2000 video? why don't you enlighten me and tell me the definition of a high definition..and full high definition video :-D

darac, anyone can Google what you are asking so please stop your kid like behavior. I for work like to use video conferencing when I am on the road. I wish the resolution would be better, that is why I ask for a 5MP front facing camera. A regular phone call is greatly improved by this feature. I use it quite often since I travel a lot. Why do you have a problem with that? Are you having a bad day? Did someone steal your lollipop? Your point in all of this is............?

here, if you were video conferencing with 5 really hot chicks and playing strip poker.. would u rather see that in low def or high def? High def. duh. Especially if they allow us to do a HDMI link to the TV/monitor while on the call so we can see it on the big screen. Try using your imagination instead of being a douche.

Ha ha, alright, I'll spell out it for you - THERE'S NO NEED FOR A 5MP FRONT FACING CAMERA. now proceed with your mature thumb down activity and don't forget to thumb your own comment up

then stick with your iOS devices where you can be told what you need and you can pretend that everything apple does is new and innovative. Let the rest of us enjoy our geekery in peace without some idiot telling us that "we dont need" something. Guess what. Most things are made before there is a "need" and then it grows "demand" for it. You dont need an ipad or a cell phone with 500k apps. You probably have one anyways, dont ya? STFU. Thanks. :)

Ok little man whatever floats your boat. Everyone here is having a good time posting then your busted a$s shows up here spewing your bogus b*tch a$s crap. Why don’t you go and bother your Mom instead of bothering us? I guess math class today was just too hard. Or maybe you just figured out that your right hand doesn't count as a girl friend. lol I guess that takes your right hand out of the possible dates you could have for this year’s prom right? Also Mr. Android user if this is your way of educating people then STFU! No one wants to hear your stupid sh*t. We all can go to Google as you did to get that information. Remember I can want whatever I want. Who are you to tell me what I need/want & don’t need/want? My Asus Transformer Prime has a 1.2MP camera so why not up the ante with a 3 to 5 MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S III? You know since technology usually moves forward. What’s it to you? Do you like to hear yourself b*tch or what? You are just looking for trouble & you have nothing positive to say about the article so just STOP the trolling. Just grow up. I take it you don’t have many friends,……….RIGHT? lol How old are you? :-)

whoa there. lol, what's your problem? 500 000 apps simply means you have greater choice. 5Mega pixels looking at you means nothing more than a useless number if full high definition video requires a resolution of 1900x 1200. what you need is less than a 2mp of high quality sensor and lense. oh and guess what, I'm an android user, and I love it. and I hate iOS

gosh. what the hell. I'm 31. and you don't need a 5mp camera for full hd video calls. that was and still is my point. do you need an 18000 horse power in your car? do you need a 10square meters bed? do you need 30 rooms in your house? you need a full hd camera, high quality sensor and high quality lens. got it now, retard?

The only retard here is you. You could have said that in a nice manner, not in a b*tch a$s kind of way. You sound like a 2 year old throwing a temper tantrum. Again I will ask you this ONE MORE TIME. Who made you the guy that determines what people NEED or WANT? How do you know what I need or want? The retarded thing is that you still think it's your duty to TELL people what they NEED or WANT. For a 31 year old man either you are VERY immature or you are the RETARD you are talking about. Either way it sucks to be you! Honestly do yourself a favor & please get a clue. lol

dont thumb yourself up what you "need" is an idiots argument and i laugh that you keep stretching it out. if you only got what you need, you can go ahead and throw away your TV, car, xbox, all electronics, couch, table, ect. you dont actually NEED any of it. You NEED food, water, and shelter. Everything else is a WANT. We dont NEED any of the idiotic things you just brought up.. but now that you mention it, I sure do WANT stuff like that. Maybe samsung gave you Abby Normal's brain instead of giving it to the Hercules. :)

lol I just don't get this guy, we were all just having some fun, talking about some specs that would be sweet & my silly "breast" comment. All was good. Then comes this guy darac just to spoil the fun we all were having. All he had to say was that 5MP is overkill in a nice manner. But no he had to be a total d*ck about it for no reason what so ever.

and I just don't get why you two are ape s**ting over my rational notion. and it's beyond belief you are still not getting it. let me rephrase .. is 5mp resolution necessary here? it's not, therefore you don't need a 5mp but a great sensor and lenses, capable of full hd recording. now if you still insist on wanting such pointless feature, it only makes you dumb and ignorant. it's like saying you want a precisely 1900×1200 image resolution on a 4.3 inch screen. no f**king purpose. done with you morons
