Korean analyst predicts Samsung will ship 11 million Galaxy Note 4s, and 1 million Note Edge units this year

Korean analyst predicts Samsung will ship 11 million Galaxy Note 4s, and 1 million Note Edge units this year
Samsung announced two brand new Galaxy Notes at IFA 2014: the Note 4, and the Note Edge. While the Note 4 is the successor to last year’s Note 3, the Note Edge is a unique handset that features a never-seen-before curved display that wraps around one of its edges. Both devices will be available to buy later this year, with the Note 4 being the first to hit shelves (starting the first half of October).

According to a report from earlier this month, South Korean analysts don’t seem to believe that the Note 4 will be more successful than the Note 3. Yonhap News quotes an analyst from Hyundai Securities who said that Samsung is expected to ship around 11 million Note 4 units by the end of the year - about the same amount of Note 3 units shipped in 2013.

The Hyundai Securities analyst also said that Samsung will ship only 1 million Galaxy Note Edge units this year, because the handset’s “manufacturing process is expected to be complicated.” Another analyst (from Dongbu Securities) added that users might find it difficult to adapt to the Note Edge and its unusual display. We ourselves aren’t sure if the wrap-around screen is innovative, or just a gimmick.

What do you think, are the numbers presented above realistic, or can Samsung ship more new Galaxy Notes before the end of 2014?

Hard to analyse this since there are more competition to the note lineup these days

what Samsung is doing is not right. i wanted to pre-order the note 4 on Verizon and i can't i have to wait a month without a phone. not cool. they should have made the pre-order same day as the iphones. they will lose lots of sales because of this. now i have to go elsewere. i'm not staying without a phone for a month. not sure what phone to take now

But not in terms of price, every phablet category now has 4000mah battery quad core processor with less than $200, not just killing note 4 but also killing samsung's $200 category device as well

Competition in the phablet category. Even if it isn't a direct competition it still draws away some customers from buying the Note. Basic economics.

Its very clear that NOTE 4 is the KING, no phone comes close to its productivity and features. some i$heeps may miss out on this piece of technology because of sentiment . This is the best handheld computing device offering everything. it will sell more than 11 million this year.

You're kidding, right? The Galaxy S series is still their fastest/highest selling line up. Plus they have dozens of new devices at all sorts of price ranges, which is where the majority of their sales come from. They've been declining lately, but they're still the top dog.

Lenovo dethroned Sammy recently in the low end segment.

We will be witnessing an empire falling down due to the lack of creativity, craftmanship, and ethic.

That may be true, but Samsung is still the leader overall by a large margin. This might be the beginning of the end for Samsung's domination, but I think they still have a few tricks up their sleeve. We'll see if they can recover in the next year or so. The biggest thing against Samsung in my opinion is Touchwiz. Android L should encourage Samsung to do a lot of remodeling on the software side, if not, then I'm giving up hope for them.

You're listing a quarter for Apple, and a year for Samsung. Yes, Samsung will sell more overall phones in a year, but this 11 million number, plus the number of GS5 they will sell the remainder of this year, will be a drop in Apple's bucket for the remainder of the year. Apple's projected sales for the remainder of the year is at 70 million plus.

You guys forget that Samsung also sells components to Apple and the rest. Sammy can't lose, more secure than the rest in the long run. As for Apple, only way is down.

They are getting a smaller piece of that pie than they were before, as well. While Samsung is on the way down, already, and Apple has been drinking their milkshake with two year-old phones, it is kind of disingenuous to say Apple is going down. Someday? Sure. Today? Not likely, and given the way they are going, not soon.

You seem to forget, but Samsung is not unique. Motorola and HTC have both held the top spot in the Android ecosystem before Sammy did. They are both on life support, and one has been sold twice in three years, once to the tune of a $7 billion loss. My prediction is that

Samsung is next for the scrap heap of Android "domination," when that happens, the Chinese OEMs will be the only dominant players, and that will hurt the remaining non-Chinese OEMs AND Google, who receives next to nothing from the Chinese companies, compared to LG, Sammy, HTC, etc.

They don't pay for Play services, they don't have Google as the default search engine, and they aren't data mining portals for Google like the mainstream players. Time to watch the dominoes fall.

Yeah, I don't understand why people don't think more of a phone that has a worse screen than both new iPhones, a worse A15 processor, worse software, and half-assed "premium" build quality. It's puzzling.

Where did you read that crap?
Another Androtaku's wishful dream.
Both Apple and Qualcomm has been delievering better architectures than ARM's reference ones for years.
Apple's Cyclon for example, does 6-issue instead of 3-issue of the reference *CA57*, thus roughly twice as fast at the same clock.

Androtakus never learn.

this is the thing jake which we(androtakus) tell you repeatedly, that you always missunderstood.... you misunderstand android with ios and consider ios as android and android as ios... thats why you praise ios so much(although its android) and you bash android so much(although its ios)... you are a technical person, I will appreciate if you'll educate ifans that iphone is a midrange device and doesnt worth such a hefty price tag... plz do this nobel work

Aren't you curious about the numbers they foretold of the GS5?

GS5 wasn't particularly bad. It just wasn't good enough, and the same applies to GN4 - good isn't good enough these days, especially with the 6+ around the corner.

Sammy has been really smart avoiding competing Apple directly with their launch scheduling, but since GS5 failed even without a direct competition, GN4 will fail much worse because of 6+.

The Note 4 won't get affected much by the iPhone 6+, because iPhone 6+ already lose miserably on the price, whereas on the Note 4 you can pay less for more.

Those who choose the iPhone 6+ over the Note 4 are most likely blind iFanboys or just because of the Apple logo.
Note 4 >>> iPhone 6+

The iPhone 6+ starts at $300 on contract, just like the Note 2 and 3 did, so I assume the Note 4 will start at $300 on contract as well. And the iPhone 6+ is actually cheaper off contract, the Note 4 starts at $800 while the 6+ starts at $750.

if we compare the hardware then ip6 & 6plus sucks... Note4 is a future proof device while iphone has hardware from 2012... iphone infact should be half price of Note4... so it is not same by any mean

SORRY, Berzerk000 but you just can't compare the Note 4 with the iPhone 6+.... The Original Galaxy Note, with it's Multi-Window, S-Pen, 8MP Camera, and other functions, is a 2011 Spec. smartphone, and can still do more than the iP6+... The 6+ is just an oversized iPhone 6. O.o

By itself, I think the Note 4 is a good upgrade from the Note 3, and is more than enough to bring in new customers and make previous Note owners eager for an upgrade. But the hype around the iPhone 6+ is just way too much for it to overcome, especially since Apple actually lived up to the hype in my opinion.

The Edge is what the Note 4 should have been. With the exception of the screen on the Note 4, there isn't a lot of incentive for Note 3 owners to upgrade. Now, the Edge would be a device that would make me want to pull out my wallet. It may be a novelty, and may not have a huge amount of usefulness (to be determined), but it would definitely be a conversation piece. I imagine the curved screen is rather difficult to make in the 10+ million quantities that is being predicted with current technology.

You would think they would release the Edge before the Note 4 since it is a new product. If the Note 4 comes out first everyone is more likely to get that instead of waiting for the Edge.

I think Note Edge is a first step towards the all-glass phone or at least edges-glass phones thatll forget about physical buttons on the sides and turn into touschscreen.
