10 Million is Less than a Month!
Samsung Galaxy S took 7 months to sell 10 Million devices, Galaxy S2 took 5 months to sell 10 Million devices, Galaxy S3 took 2 months to sell 10 Million devices and now the Samsung Galaxy S4 has achieved new heights by selling 10 Million devices in even less than a month. With this, Samsung Galaxy S4 became the fastest selling Android phone. Samsung has reported that it is selling four Galaxy S4’s in one second.
Now, latest reports from Mark Sue (RBC Capital Markets analyst) has predicted that the strong sales of the Samsung flagship device will continue for the entire year and Samsung will sell a humongous 80 Million SIV’s this year. And if that happens, Samsung is going to leave its competitors far behind.
Samsung vs Apple
For now, Apple is without any new device and they would definitely want to break the momentum of Samsung. But keep it still, Apple will do their best to strike back as the date for their World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) comes closer (June 10-June 14 2013).
The Samsung Galaxy SIV will help Samsung take a big lead as the top mobile manufacturer in the world and this will definitely result in an amazing scenario in the technology world.
