When it comes to sales of its Galaxy S handsets, Samsung isn’t shy, largely because they tend to move in ludicrous volumes; Sammo ain't got nothin' to hide.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is – surprise, surprise – no different to its predecessors, proving stupidly popular, and an anonymous exec has been leaking all sorts of impressive figures.
Firstly, we’re hearing that four million Samsung Galaxy S4 units were shipped in the first five days alone. Not too shabby.
To give that achievement some context, it took the original Galaxy S 85 days to shift just three million, the Galaxy S2 55 days to do the same, and 21 days for the ultra-popular Galaxy S3.
An unnamed Samsung exec told Korea’s Chosunilbo: "As of Friday, we have sold more than 6 million units, and we predict that we could break the 10-million mark by as early as the end of this month.”
In layman’s terms, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a slightly bigger Samsung Galaxy S3 with lots of fancy software features, such as Dual Camera, Dual Video Call, S Translator, Smart Scroll, Smart Pause, S Voice Drive, Air Gesture, Group Play...
Later tonight, BBC Watchdog will report on the Samsung Galaxy S4 storage issue, specifically that 7GB of the advertised 16GB is claimed out of the box, leaving users with just 9GB to play with.
