Analysts see Samsung selling 55 million Galaxy S6, S6 Edge units in 2015
Between carriers and retailers combined, Samsung has already reportedly received 20 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets. Because of this, the company is apparently ramping up production on both handsets, set to produce an additional 13 million handsets by the end of April. Even though the phones don’t launch globally until April 10th, Samsung will likely have a very good turnout when it comes to sales. According to analysts from DRAMeXchange, the company may sell more than 55 million Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets in 2015 alone.
According to the report, Samsung is forecasted to sell 22.2 million units of the S6 and S6 Edge in Q2, 16.2 million in Q3 and 12.5 million in Q4.
While these estimates may seem high, Samsung certainly won’t achieve these numbers with ease. The recently-announced HTC One M9 goes on sale tomorrow in Taiwan, and launches in the U.S. the same day as the Galaxy S6. Additionally, we’ve been hearing a lot about LG’s G4 handset, which could possibly be announced around mid-April. And according to a few rumors, the G4 could bring with it a curved screen, which could be a rival to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
