On Samsung’s official Flickr page, the Korean smartphone giant announced that pre-orders of the highly coveted Galaxy S2 have reached a whopping 3 million when the month of April came to an end. This means you can add a couple more thousands since we have entered the second week of May.

Regarded by many as the top smartphone of its class this 2011, there are various reasons why the smartphone’s popularity is ever growing. The handset comes with a highly efficient Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor Mali-400MP GPU Orion chipset, which is responsible for the smartphone unequalled performance. It also comes with 1 GB of RAM that adds more to the phone’s performance. To top it all off, the smartphone comes pre-installed with the latest version of the Android OS the 2.3 Gingerbread. Other dual-core Android smartphones come pre-installed with the Froyo 2.2 version, which disappointed many.
Aside from software and processing power, the handset comes with a Super AMOLED 4.3 inch display that delivers 480 x 800 pixels of resolution. It also comes with an 8 MP camera that is capable of HD video recording. Sadly, the UK version does not come with the highly anticipated NFC chip. However, there are rumors flying around that the UK version can be NFC-enabled at any time by Samsung.
With this much success, it is interesting to see how the recently unveiled HTC Sensation and the highly anticipated iPhone 5 will do when they do make in shops. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has definitely set the bar high.
Samsung has been responsible for creating unique handsets such as the Google Nexus S with its NFC capabilities and it has also been behind one of the most popular Android smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S.
