Samsung put some lofty expectations on the device even before it was launched. Back in February, analyst Peter Misek from Jefferies said that the Korean manufacturer was planning on selling 100 million units of the Galaxy S4. At the time, 60 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III had been purchased. The executive probably would not have released the figure if it was a total too far behind Samsung's own expectations. With this thought in mind, don't expect an early arrival of the Galaxy S5.
Shin also addressed another issue, the problem Samsung has been having with batteries that swell. Earlier this year, this happened to a Samsung Galaxy S III. Some carriers are now estimating that 30% of their customers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 are experiencing a swollen battery. This could lead to an explosion or fire. The manufacturer has introduced a free replacement program for affected customers. Shin says that Samsung's supplier is working with it to prevent these problems from happening to future supplies of batteries.
