10 million Samsung Galaxy S4s to be shipped in the first month. S4 Mini delayed?
The brand new Samsung Galaxy S4 will be released at the end of this month in many countries around the world – about 50 for the beginning.
According to DigiTimes, Samsung wants to ship about 10 million S4 units in the first month of availability, and demand for the full second quarter (April – June) may reach 30 million units.
In the US, all major carriers are going to offer the Galaxy S4, and it looks like T-Mobile will be the first to have it, starting April 24. The new handset should arrive a bit later in the UK: on April 27.
The previous Galaxy S flagship – the S III – has reached sales of 50 million units in March, nine months after its initial launch. Obviously, the S4 is expected to be even more successful, and should hit the 50 million mark faster.
In related news, it looks like the cheaper 4.3 inch Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini won’t be introduced as soon as previously reported. SamMobile says that the smartphone has been delayed from Week 21 (late May) to Week 29 (mid July). Like the larger S4, the Galaxy S4 Mini will run Android Jelly Bean. There should be three versions of it: single SIM (GT-i9190), dual SIM (GT-i9192), and LTE (GT-i9195).
