So far we talked about the rumored Galaxy S4 news, photos, leaks and specs, but it is as though we are forgetting one of the most important things. For us, this is quality, but for Samsung? Well, it has to be profit, after all they won't be handing out the S4 for free to people on the street! So, how much profit is the Korean tech giant expecting to get out of their upcoming flagship device? And how many devices can they even sell? The title of this article may have ruined the surprise: reports are claiming that Samsung hopes to sell 10 million units per month once the device is launched. So, the question we are asking is whether or not this is possible. We will give our own answer in this article, but we would like to hear what you this via the comments down bellow.
|The S3 sold quite well in 2012, is it time for the S4 to take over?|
Before we can answer whether or not Samsung can sell 10 million units per month we should look at the previous success that this company has had. For good measure, let us compare those sale figures with other ones as well. From what I have seen, CNET reported mid January that Samsung had sold over 40 million Galaxy S3 devices in total (here is the article) which means that sales are indeed going well, but not that well to actually predict that Samsung can sell 10 million units per month! After all, the S3 was released about 7 months ago, which means it sold roughly 5,7 million units per month on average. Can Samsung really sell double the amount of S3 devices that they have sold? If so, then that will really make some interesting Galaxy S4 news a year from now.
On other hand, we have Apple, a company that has sold 47.8 million iPhones in the fourth quarter of 2012 which is quite impressive and a type of number Samsung will probably want to get passed in the coming seasons.
My personal opinion is that Samsung might be able to sell more than 10 million of these devices during the first month of the Galaxy S4 release. However, sales will gradually start dropping and if Samsung really hopes to sell 10 million each month, then I am afraid that this will hardly be the case. However, Samsung has people working on their plans and these people are far smarter than me, that's for sure! I doubt a Samsung official has given this statement and I feel that this is just another fake rumor.
