Samsung's pre-order numbers are higher than the number of iPhone 4 pre-orders in August 2010, the iPhone 4 only had 110, 000 pre-orders.

Note that Samsung is a Korean company whilst Apple is an American company and Apple only had KT as it's carrier when the phone was launched. Samsung has planned to sell the same number of Galaxy S II's as it's predecessor, 10 million is the target for 2011.
