Samsung has announced that its flagship smartphone of 2015, the Galaxy S6, and its curved sibling, the Galaxy S6 Edge, have been drawing less attention from consumers in South Korea than expected — so it’s quite possible the company won’t reach its regional sales target of over 50 million.
From launch on April 10 till Sunday, April 19, Samsung had sold over 200,000 units of both variants in its hometown heavily falling short of the 300,000 preorders the company initially reported, which leads us to believe that the earlier sales forecasts may have been slightly exaggerated.
Despite this, Samsung doesn’t appear to be worried. It firmly believes that the Galaxy S6’s wireless-charging battery and the Edge’s dual-curved display will draw more attention from locals wishing to upgrade their handsets.
Independent retailers have put they’re tuppence worth in, too, saying that they “expect sales to improve soon as mobile carriers decided to increase subsidies on the Galaxy S6 series.”
