Having managed to impress the specialist press, analysts and mobile operators during the presentation of its benchmark smartphones Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the Samsung group hopes to regain consumer interest after a Galaxy S5 with sales below expectations.
Strong pre-orders from operators gave a positive indication of expectations for new models, allowing the Korean group to anticipate good financial results to come.
Confirming this first impression, the smartphone manufacturer has just indicated that its Galaxy S6 series has already passed the bar of 10 million units sold during the first month of marketing.
Samsung does not say, however, whether this milestone was reached quickly or not. For the record, the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 models had also crossed the 10 million mark during the first month of launch.
At a time when the announcements of high-end smartphones are telescoping quickly, leaving a window of opportunity and visibility always reduced, any announcement of sales from the first weeks of marketing remains good to take for observers.
It remains to be seen whether the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will exceed 50 million units sold, or even 70 million smartphones, as predicted by some analysts, pending the arrival of the Galaxy Note 5.
