Samsung announced they sold 10 million Galaxy S II phones in 5 months

Samsung Electronics says that today they sold their 10 millionth Galaxy S2 smartphone. The S2 is the fastest selling phone ever for Samsung (the Star phone took 6 month to reach 10 million sales, and the Galaxy S took 7 months). The company also revealed that they sold 3.6 units in Korea, 3.4 units in Europe and 2.3 million in Asia. It just started selling in the US in the past few days...

Samsung's Galaxy S2 is the successor to the popular Galaxy S. It has a 4.3" WVGA Super AMOLED plus display, 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, NFC, Bluetooth 3 and HSPA+. It's only 8.49mm thick at its thinnest point.

If Samsung achieved its 10 MM Galaxy S II sold in 5 months, how it comes they were producing 3 MM substrates a month and now they are producing 24MM a month with plans to ramp it up to 48 at the end of 2011 and to 100 MM at june 2012. If anybody has data on this please share it at

Not sure what exactly you are trying to say, but I think you have to keep in mind that the Galaxy SII is not Samsungs only AMOLED product currently on the market and others like the Note will be launched soon. So it makes total sense that their overall production numbers for AMOLEDs are higher than the sales of their Galaxy SII alone.

The other thing is that you always have to be careful with those numbers. Most of the times those numbers give the production capacity and not the actual production. Especially given that Samsung is not very likely to ever officially announce actual production figures.

What I'm trying to figure out is how those numbers add up.The other two models sold 10 MM units in 7 and 6 months respectivly. So, the planed incremental production is still on those dates: 48 MM by the end of dec 2011 and 100 MM by the end of jun 2012? Thanks for your reply, any clarification or data will be very well apreciated.

I think Samsung is still on track with their original plan.

Another thing to keep in mind is display size. The AMOLED displays are getting larger - The S2 phones have 4.3" ones (some have 4.52") while the Galaxy S had 4". So the same capacity will make less displays. Not to mention that now Samsung is gearing up to make 5" display (for the Vita and the Note) and even 7.7" ones...
