This year, Samsung claimed that it would sell 70 million GalaxyS6 and S6 Edge by the end of 2015. The company also had claimed that it had taken 20M pre-orders prior the release of both phones. Reports by a Korean news agency, Yonhap, a Samsung official stated and confirmed that the sales of the phone after a month crossed 10 Million. The company didn’t mention when they had crossed 10 million but they only have 7 months to sell out the remaining 60 Million Units. This news is extremely disappointing as on an average they have to sell 8.6 Million units per month.
Analysts are still waiting for the official numbers making the public wait for it and the company in high hopes. Since there has been only one Korean news outlet that has published this story it’s possible that this information isn’t very accurate.
The company sales needs to be strong to boost the company’s image. Earlier the Galaxy S5 and S4 had started selling strong (11 million and 10 million units respectively) in about the same time though after that it didn’t continue. As a matter of fact, it’s the lack of growth in the sales of S5 the company was inspired for a radical reboot in the S6. The company ended up selling 40% lesser units than expected.
Samsung had naturally expected a lot for Galaxy S6 which for now is considered as not only one of the most attractive but also powerful smartphones Samsung has ever launched. The phone features wireless charging, metal design, a sleek glass, and an extremely high-end specs. To add up to all this, the S6 Edge sports a curved display making it look more attractive. For now, it’s too early to tell if Galaxy S6 will succeed or not.
