Samsung has sold more than 5 million units of its Galaxy S II phone, TNW reports, citing Yonhap News Agency.While that number is nowhere close to the 20.3 million iPhones shipped last quarter, it’s a good sign for when the Galaxy S II finally launches in the U.S.
It’s very likely the Galaxy S II will launch in the States in August. Yesterday, a few images of AT&T’s version of the phone leaked out. That model includes a slide-out keyboard.
And today Engadget discovered a FCC filing for Sprint’s version of the phone that includes a 4G radio.
It’s likely Samsung is delaying the phone’s U.S. launch so it can compete with the iPhone 5, which should arrive in September.
