Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are all set to break the previous pre-order records Samsung received with its flagship devices. Samsung got 20 million pre-orders for these two smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S5 sold only 12 million units during the first three months, while Samsung sold 20 million Galaxy S4 units during first two months. In both cases the pre-orders were lower than Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge together.
“Samsung received some 20 million pre-orders for the S6 and S6 Edge -15 million of S6 and five million of the S6 Edge from mobile carriers, worldwide. This is the record,” a top executive at a leading mobile carrier in Europe told The Korea Times.
It is also reported that the Netherlands will be the first country to receive the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. It is also confirmed that the 32-GB variant of Galaxy S6 will cost 700 euros and S6 Edge will cost 850 euros.
During MWC Samsung’s mobile chief J.K. Shin said that pre-orders of the two Galaxy variants from the company’s major clients “are really huge.” Shin expects sales of the Galaxy S6 to be higher than its predecessor.
