20 million Samsung Galaxy S4 units already shipped?
It looks like Samsung has already shipped 20 million Galaxy S4 smartphones around the world. At least that’s what Korean media is reporting, as there is no press release or official confirmation on this for the moment.
The news comes about one month after Samsung announced it had shipped 10 million units worldwide (at the end of May), and two months since the handset’s initial release (late April).
Earlier this year, before the actual launch of its new flagship smartphone, Samsung said it had hoped to ship at least 50 million units. While this will happen eventually, it remains to be seen just how soon it’s going to be. As previously reported, this month (July) Samsung may produce only 6.5 million Galaxy S4 units.
Still, the S4 is definitely a hot-seller, and shipments are way higher than in the case of the old Galaxy S III – which reached 20 million units sold in 100 days since launch.
Alongside the regular Galaxy S4, Samsung has recently introduced three other variants of it: Galaxy S4 Mini, the waterproof Galaxy S4 Active, and the Galaxy S4 Zoom (which comes with a 16MP rear camera that features 10x optical zoom). Only the S4 Mini and S4 Active are available for now, with the S4 Zoom expected to be released in the next couple of months.
