Smartphones Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge should achieve honorable volumes close to 50 million units but far enough from the analysts' (too) optimistic forecasts (70 million units). Faced with the iPhone generally launched in September, the Korean group should again align its smartphone this year Galaxy Note 5 on the high end.
It is rumored, however, that Samsung would put pressure on its R&D branch in order to be able to launch a Galaxy S7 from the second half of 2015, with a launch 2 to 3 months earlier than expected, which would take it towards November-December.
It would be the first time that Samsung unveils two Galaxy models in the same year, even if in 2014 there was the Galaxy S5 but also the Galaxy Alpha with metal shell which prepared the Galaxy A family in the mid-range. We can still doubt this rumor which could jeopardize the success of the Galaxy Note 5 in September and when the Galaxy S6 Plus and S6 Edge Plus in July.
