Samsung Securities, which is a full service investment house, predicts that despite "Galaxy S4′s sluggish initial sales", the manufacturer is expected to sell over 80 million smartphones during the third quarter that ends this month. During the second quarter, the Korean OEM sold 71 million smartphones of which 22 million were the Samsung Galaxy S4. Clearly, the worries about Samsung and its flagship model were over done. The fears that Samsung would ship 7 million Galaxy S4 units monthly instead of the 10 million originally expected, now appears to be paranoia on the part of analysts.
And with the Samsung Galaxy Note III expected to be introduced on Wednesday, the positive sales trend should continue during the fourth quarter. It looks like Samsung never lost its mojo at all.
