A Galaxy is Born: How Samsung Created a Sensation
We already shared the news that over 10 percent of Koreans now use Galaxy S II and that the phone has become one of the hottest sellers in other countries as well, selling more than 10 million units. As the Galaxy S III promises to soon reveal the full awesomeness of this series, we thought this was a perfect time to take a look back at the Galaxy line.
While the original Galaxy S was popular, the Galaxy S II was even moreso, selling a record-setting 3 million devices in 55 days. The 1GHz dual core processor provided a much faster browsing experience along with a 4.3-inch display which made it far more comfortable to read and browse websites.

After releasing the Galaxy S II, Samsung came out with the Galaxy Note, which has attracted attention with its huge 5.3-inch screen, making it a viable pocket-size alternative to a larger tablet for some people. We can’t forget to mention the S-Pen stylusl, which gives a special touch to the device and allows users to show-off their creativity by drawing and writing. A few weeks ago at Mobile Word Congress, Samsung announced a larger 10.1-inch version of the Galaxy Note, which will likely offer a better canvass for the S-Pen’s capabilities to really shine.
The latest Galaxy series product that Samsung revealed was the Galaxy Beam, a smartphone with a 15-Lumen LED-powered projector. An awesome concept, with this Galaxy Beam, maybe soon we won’t need bulky projectors anymore. It’ll just be a matter of pulling the Galaxy Beam out of our pockets and impressing everyone in the room.
Samsung continues to churn out amazing products that win people’s hearts. We are so excited for the Samsung Galaxy S III and what great features it will have!
