The Korean based Samsung Electronics have made it public that in the first month of release of flagship Galaxy S4, the device managed to achieve 10 million sales. The Galaxy S4 made global debut on 27th April and it is being purchased at the rate of four handsets each second.
Experts feel that HTC One is quite good and on some aspects it is on par with Samsung Galaxy S4. However, even though HTC One released around two weeks before the Galaxy S4, the sales of HTC One is considerably less than Galaxy S4. The main reason behind it is that Samsung has invested heavily in advertising its flagship device. Now, it has reached such a point that even if it does not advertise its Galaxy S line of devices, the products will be able to achieve impressive results.
Apple’s iPhones are still the most preferred smartphone brands in US. The sales of Galaxy S products are less than that of iPhones. Achieving 10 million sales in just one month is quite an achievement for Samsung. The predecessor phone, the Galaxy S3 was able to achieve the same mark in 50 days. It took around five months for Galaxy S2 to reach 10 million sales. The same result was achieved by Galaxy S in seven months.
On the other hand, 5 million units of iPhone 5 was sold in the first week and by first quarter, it managed to achieve 47 million sales.At present, the Galaxy S4 is being sold in 110 countries and in the near future it will be made available to 155 countries.
In some countries, the Galaxy S4 is powered with Samsung Exynos 5 Octa CPU and in other countries it is powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU. The Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with a 5inch Super AMOLED display which supports 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution with 441ppi. It has got 2GB RAM and is available three storage variants such as 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It has also external memory slot.
The Galaxy S4 houses a staggering 13MP camera at the rear and the front facing camera is of 2MP. Both the cameras are capable of recording HD videos of 1080p. As far as connectivity is concerned, it provides you with Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and MHL 2.0. It is packed with 2100mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Ben OS and we feel the phone will be soon updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. You can browse high speed internet on through its 4G LTE connectivity.
Samsung is releasing various versions of the Galaxy 4 such as the ruggedized Galaxy S4 Activ and Galaxy S4 Mini. Also, there are rumors that the S4 is going to be available in different colors such as blue, red, purple and brown. Currently, the S4 is available in white and black colors only. The only competitor for Samsung is Apple. Very soon Samsung plans to launch various new products including ATIV products which include desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones powered with Windows Phone OS. If Apple does not manage to provide something unique in its forthcoming iterations, Samsung can easily surpass Apple in the near future.
