Not long after Samsung‘s duo of flagship devices was announced, analysts predicted Samsung would sell 50 million handsets. Now, after a full week of global sales, Samsung is claiming that at least 70 million Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets is an achievable target. Whether this is just a yearly target, or lifetime sales, isn’t known, but The Korea Times quotes Samsung Vice Chairman Kwon Oh-hyun as simply saying “The S6 should do well. The first week looks impressive.”
It’s all possible thanks to an incredible global interest in both the vanilla Galaxy S6 and curved S6 Edge – if there needs to be just one example of the intense fervour, the extreme popularity of these devices in Samsung’s native Korea should be it. The success of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is especially crucial for Samsung who lost substantial ground to Apple and its fellow Android competitors due to the poor performance of its Galaxy S5, but it appears their fortunes have turned around.
