Having seen the Samsung Galaxy S2 shoot straight to the top of the UK smartphone charts – Samsung plans to launch a third generation version in 2012.
Samsung officially unveiled the sequel to the Galaxy S at this years Mobile World Congress in February. Samsung’s J.K Shin, President of their Mobile Communications division has announced that they are already working on a follow-up expected to launch next year.
“Samsung may launch a third version of its Galaxy S smartphone in the first half of next year after launching a second-generation version called Galaxy S II last month,” said J.K. Shin.
Samsung’s Android handset has been a real success story with the original model racking up 10 million units, and the new one is set to break that record even quicker than the last.
The new model only came out last month, but seems to have made quite an impression – it sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and 8 megapixel snapper which supports 1080p full video recording – all housed in a super slim form factor.
According to early sales forecasts the new model has already shifted 1.3 million units in its opening month – which means it’s looking like it will top 15 million over the next 12 months.
