Samsung has officially announced that its latest flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S II, has received more than three million pre-orders around the world.

Emulating the success of its predecessor, a handset that notched up 10 million sales in its opening six months, Samsung unveiled the pre-order figures for the Galaxy S II after it emerged the device had received 120,000 pre-orders in the company’s native South Korea.

Following news of its rocketing pre-order figures fears have arisen over stock shortages and failure to meet demand of the smartphone that almost hosts an 8-megapixel camera with Full HD 1080p video recording credentials and Google’s Android 2.3 mobile operating system.

Looking to quell concerns Samsung has announced via Flickr: "There are quite a few demands in some countries to ask for preferred orders for the supply of Galaxy S II. We will do our utmost best to ensure that all the global demands should be met as quickly as possible."

Can the Samsung Galaxy S II dominate the smartphone market or will the likes of the HTC Sensation and mooted Apple iPhone 5 take the crown? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
