The Samsung Galaxy S5 has been the most talked about flagship of the year which is no surprise considering the company’s credentials. The Korean manufacturer has now mentioned that it expects the handset to ship in excess of 35 million units by the end of June 2014, which is when the second quarter of the year draws to a close.
One would say that’s a very optimistic sales estimation, but not farfetched considering the demand for its smartphones right now. The company reportedly sold 1.3x more units of its flagship on launch day compared to the Galaxy S4 last year. However, the smartphone has received lukewarm reception in some of the regions mainly due to its pricing and presence of solid competition from the likes of HTC. And with LG looking to launch its flagship later in the year, Samsung might have to reconsider those figures.
But we’ll get a clearer picture of how things stand in the next couple of months which will show us how Samsung’s flagship is faring in the markets. At the moment though, it’s nothing out of the ordinary, although researchers and analysts predict a good future for the handset.
