After seeing the huge success of its Galaxy S3 selling 10 million units in 50 days, Samsung reportedly has higher goals with the Galaxy S4 - the tech giant has set a huge goal of selling 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones per month. Yes, you read that right. Ten million per month.
It's no secret that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will outsell the Galaxy S3, as each Galaxy S successor has sold more than the previous model. Samsung's goal of selling 10 million Galaxy S4 units per month sounds like a lofty goal at the moment, but if you look back at the history of Samsung's Galaxy S sales numbers, it could easily achieve this high mark. The Samsung Galaxy S2 sold 10 million units globally in five months followed by the Galaxy S3 selling 10 million units in 50 days.
MoneyToday (translated) via AndroidAuthority is reporting that Samsung is preparing to move 10 million Galaxy S4 units per month. The publication believes this figure because sources have told it that Samsung has ordered each of its subcontractors to deliver 10 million components per month.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to be unveiled sometime in March with a possible release in April. The device is rumored to be equipped with a 4.99-inch 440 ppi (pixels per inch) Full HD Super AMOLED display, 1.8GHz 8-core Exynos 5 Octa processor , a 13-megapixel rear camera, 4G LTE radio, 2GB of RAM, a microSD slot, wireless charging capabilities and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
If you think 10 million Galaxy S4 units per month is an unbelievable number, let me remind you that Samsung wants to sell over 500 million mobile phones this year and is predicting that 350 million of them will be smartphones. Samsung sold around 420 million phones in 2012, so as far-fetched as their goal sounds; Samsung will almost certainly accomplish selling 10 million Galaxy S4 units per month and 500 million mobile phones in the entire year.
