The Samsung Galaxy S II, the dual-core superstar we got our hands on back at Mobile World Congress, is turning out to be one of the most popular smartphones of 2011.
That's not based so much on actual handsets that have been sold, however, as the Galaxy S II has only just made its long-awaited appearance on the shelves. But throw in pre-orders, says Samsung, and we're talking an impressive three million units.
To be fair, two million of those have come from Korea alone, including 120,000 actual sales on its official launch day, but the Galaxy S II has clearly attracted plenty of interest elsewhere too.
And we're not surprised: a 4.3in Super AMOLED display boasting a 480 x 800 resolution, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and full HD video recording and playback lead the way on a hugely impressive feature set.
Samsung says it's hoping to shift 10 million Galaxy S IIs before the end of the year, so the current figures are definitely a step in the right direction.
It's certainly the best phone we've seen so far this year, but the mobile industry moves quickly, so with more than half the year still ahead of us we wouldn't be counting our chickens just yet if we were in Samsung's shoes.
