Samsung expects to sell 10 million Galaxy S 4 devices in the first month
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 might be made out of plastic and not as pretty as rivals like the HTC One or Apple iPhone 5, but that might be a practical decision as Samsung is planning on selling a boatload of its new flagship. In the first month alone, Samsung expects to sell as many as 10 million Galaxy S 4s.

“Based on checks we had with suppliers,” IBK Securities analyst Lee Seung-woo said for Reuters, “Samsung has already done significant work to ensure smooth supply.”

Recently, we heard whispers about HTC having troubles manufacturing its beautiful aluminum One device. We’ve also heard countless times now about Apple having problems manufacturing iPhones to match the huge demand.

Samsung’s all plastic approach on the other hand has not let the company down - it has mastered it to almost perfection introducing similarly designed devices at all price points. Those might all look the same, but they are quick and easy to make, fool-proof, and maybe that’s what it takes to succeed.

I hope Samsung can do it, and we are all waiting for the event, just only 1 day left. So Samsung don't disappoint us. :)

The only thing that entices me is the Octacore CPU. If I was to buy a phone on its looks, the HTC One would be top of my list..

cant say it has "never" let Samsung down. Anyone remember the back cover fiasco for the pebble blue version of s3 during launch that caused shortage for that color?

Looks and materials of a phone is personal preference but performance and display out way design for the vast majority. Why? Because they get a plastic case anyway.

I don't understand the hate of plastic (Samsung actually use a poly-carbonate like material), it allows better battery life, its more durable and most of all removable battery!!!

Lets be honest about design, the Xperia Z is alot like the galaxy s 2, the HTC ONE is a lot like the iPhone.

The most original design was the first batch of lumias, but they are now a few years old and stale much like iPhones.

Samsung may not win awards for sexiest phone, but there's a reason why they are Number 1.

Fix your Eye Bro.
lumias is from N9, N9 is from an ipod concept.
HTC One is from Xperia P back and BB Z10 front
S2 is from Iphone, Iphone is from Sony prototype Walkman
hahahaha

I am a Samsung fan... But if Samsung think they can make a blind Man-imal out of me like Apple, it ain't gonna work... Your "Features" are good, but please listen to your consumers. Plastic ain't the problem, it's that there are tooooooooooooooooo many S3 lookalikes already.

Lol so the reason why samsung makes their flagships with cheap plastic is because they want to make more money!

Just shows people like Nokia,Sony,Htc still cares about their user by making very durable and beautiful phones while samsung is in it for the money!

they want plastic for its durability,
sammy also want removable battery that shows HOW THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR USERs
ur illogical >above all galaxy users will know first that the phone is plastic before buying it;; AND SO THESE USERS WILL NOT SAY THAT SAMSUNG DONT GIVE THEIR CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY WANT -"durable and beautiful phone"
