Samsung Galaxy S4 shipments to hit 30 million in Q2? Samsung Galaxy S4 mini delayed?

Samsung Galaxy S4 shipments to hit 30 million in Q2? Samsung Galaxy S4 mini delayed?Naysayers have been typically outspoken about the Samsung Galaxy S4’s plastic body, but Joe Public appears set to go absolutely mental for Sammo’s latest flagship.

Carphone Warehouse recently described Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders as “off the charts”, and Q2 shipments are tipped to hit the 30 million mark. Cripes.

The 30 million figure for Q2 Samsung Galaxy S4 shipments is touted by good old DigiTimes, which credits only unnamed “sources”.

Still, that ties roughly with other numbers doing the rounds. The South Koreans are reportedly expecting to punt 100 million Samsung Galaxy S4s in total.

To give those figures some context, the Samsung Galaxy S2 took 20 months to hit the 40 million mark, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 took just seven (equating to 190,000 units per day).

You know what's funny is that the iPhone 5 has been estimated to have sold over 50 million units worldwide as of the end of Q1 2013. The S3 has shipped 50 million as of roughly the same time. So the iPhone and S3 are pretty much on par at the moment.

But obviously the iPhone 5 was released later so i wouldn't be surprised if the iPhone 5 ends up outselling the S3 in the long run.

But aren't those figures a bit misleading seeing as they only quote figures for shipped phones and not handsets that actually end up in the hands of consumers. So in reality the numbers of phone owners are probably a lot lower than the quoted figures they're bragging about.

Yeah, TJ... as always.
Of course, Samsung are not alone. They all do this.
