4.3-inch Samsung Galaxy S II Pre-orders Break 3 Million Units

The Android revolution is continuing and Samsung is very much ready to lead the charge. The Galaxy S series of smartphone variants like the Fascinate and Captivate have been huge hit for Samsung and this trend is continuing with the official successor: the Galaxy S II.

Let’s put this into perspective. The first Galaxy S sold over 10 million units last year. That’s a pretty huge success. If you consider that there are already three million pre-orders on the Galaxy S II you’ve got to wonder how many sales will happen that aren’t pre-orders.  I think the whole Super AMOLED display is a huge factor for setting Samsung’s Android offerings apart from the HTCs and Motorolas of the world.

As a quick refresher, the Samsung Galaxy S II gets a pretty significant spec bump over its predecessor. The single-core 1GHz Hummingbird processor gets replaced with a 1.2GHz dual-core Orion processor. They’ve also included TouchWiz 4.0, Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, and an 8MP camera with 1080p HD video support. The Super AMOLED screen is a little bigger too at 4.27-inches versus the old 4.0-inch display.

If it were not for the recent push towards dual core processors, I’d recommend the Samsung Nexus S. As it stands, the Galaxy S II will truly be a sight to behold and I’m pretty stoked about it all. Apparently, I’m not alone.
