Samsung Galaxy S2 has received pre-order bookings of three million worldwide.
Samsung earlier said that it received 1.2 lakh preorders for the phone, thus breaking the records set by iPhone4 sales, in South Korea.
The phone will be made available across 120 countries worldwide, including India, starting from April 28. The phone, which is based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, has a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Plus display and a dual core processor. The other noticeable features are 1 GB RAM, USB 2.0, 8 megapixel back camera, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. It comes in two versions: 16 GB and 32 GB storage capability.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is just 8.49 mm in thickness, which makes it thinnest among the smartphones. Chances are some other phone will soon beat it, but till then its makers can celebrate.
The phone is showing a level of buzz that Samsung has become apprehensive it won’t be able to meet the consumer demand for the phone. Also, the popularity of the phone underlines the consumer confidence in Android as an operating system.
