Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has hit 10 million channel sales one month after its release. The company announced its latest milestone today just eight days after confirming that it had shipped over 6 million units of the S4 since its international launch on April 26. According to Samsung, this is the fastest ever sell rate for any of its smartphones.
(Channel sales are to wireless operators and not direct to consumers. In other words, the numbers are for units shipped.)
So, samesung is killing it, right? It has shipped ten million to carriers and resellers in a month. That’s obviously more than the sixteen million a month in the Holliday Quarter for iPhones, and much more than the twelve million iPhones Apple sold in the last “dissapointing quarter”, to actual customers.
Clearly Apple selling five million iPhones in a weekend is a complete and utter failure and samesung is the new king. All hail the copycat.
