It has been revealed that Korean mobile phone giants Samsung expect their new flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II to rack up sales over ten million when it gets released in the coming weeks. Last year was a remarkable year for Samsung as they re-established themselves at the top of the mobile phone market with the release, and subsequent success of the brilliant samsung galaxy s. The Galaxy swept almost all before it, battling with the iPhone 4 for the title of 2010’s best mobile and Samsung are hoping that their follow up to the award winning phone will be just as, if not more, successful. It seems that Samsung are more than hopeful, if the quotes coming out of the company are anything to go by. Confident is probably the more apt word as they look to hit an eight figure sales number over the next year.
Samsung, who release the phone on the 1st May, have announced that they are extremely happy with how their new high end phone has turned out. Samsung UK and Ireland mobile MD Simon Stanford stated: ‘We are confident it’s [the device] a great package for anyone wanting a superior smartphone experience.” The firm have every reason to be boastful about the Galaxy S II; it looks like it is a great phone. Boasting a 1 ghz dual core processor, the phone is hot on the heels of last month’s LG Optimus X2, the first ever dual core phone, in terms of speed. According to Samsung the new processor “provides unsurpassed functionality and density for faster browsing, quicker multi-tasking, a smoother UI, snappier streaming and highly efficient gaming. With encoding/decoding ability that supports video play and recording”. The new Galaxy also comes with an 8mp camera, an upgrade of 3 million pixels from last year’s Galaxy, this and plenty more should mean an exciting launch next week.
