If you thought that the Galaxy S 4 was just a raging success during its first month of sales at 10 million units, the company has new numbers that continue to surprise. Sure, selling 9 million iPhones in a weekend is a crazy amount for its competitors, but the fact that Apple didn’t report on their sales during the first couple of weeks is an indicator that things aren’t necessarily as perfect for them as they are for Samsung.
See, the Korean giant has now reported that they’ve sold 40 million Samsung Galaxy S 4s in just six months, and for any company to retain this level of popularity for any phone in such a long period of time means a lot. Just to give you an idea, Samsung sold 38 million Galaxy Notes in a full year, so once you add the amount of Galaxy phones in the market that have been far more successful than the original Note, and you add the current Galaxy S 4s in the market, you get to have an idea of why Samsung is winning.
Samsung’s JK Shin hasn’t provided details on how much the rest of the Galaxy line-up sold, but for just one phone to sell 40 million devices in half a year can tell you enough.
