The Samsung Galaxy S is proving to be very popular with mobile phone buyers, new sales figures have revealed.
According to the technology company, ten million consumers around the world now own one of the handsets.
JK Shin, president of mobile communications at Samsung, described this achievement as a "milestone" for the firm.
"It is the realisation of our concept of the Smart Life," he commented.
"We wanted to make users' lives more convenient, more exciting and more integrated."
Mr Shin added that the Galaxy S, which was launched in June last year, is the result of Samsung's 22-year "heritage in the mobile industry".
The device makes use of the Android operating system and comes with features including a 5.0 megapixel AF camera, an HD video player and recorder, a light sensor and multi-touch zoom mode.
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S can also make use of an integrated calendar, a satellite navigation function, wireless tethering and the Social Hub application.
The latter allows people to enjoy quick and easy access to social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook while they are on the move, so they can check the latest status updates from their friends at any time.
Mobile phone owners who are thinking of recycling their handset may wish to consider investing in a Samsung Galaxy S after the device was commended by consumer group Which? Mobile.
Consumers were advised that it has much in common with the iPhone, although its lower price tag could make it a good option for those who are seeking a slightly cheaper alternative to Apple's popular handset.
This comes after T3 magazine hailed the Samsung Galaxy S as an "all-round winner" and one of the best mobile phones of its kind, partly because it offers strong messaging and an excellent media player.
