10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be shipped to 50 countries by the end of this month
By the end of this month, Korean manufacturer Samsung will have shipped its new Android flagship model, the Samsung Galaxy S4, to 50 different countries. Eventually the phone will be shipped to 150 countries representing 327 carriers. Obviously in a world divided by religion, political affiliation and even sports teams, everyone can come together for a smartphone. According to sources from the supply chain, nearly 10 million units will ship the first month.

Demand for the device is pegged at the same 10 million unit figure for the first month, rising to 30 million in the second quarter. Thanks to better features on the newer model, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to do better than its predecessor which sold 6.5 million units in the second quarter last year. But considering  that the Samsung Galaxy S III launched at the end of May last year, it had one less selling month than the Samsung Galaxy S4 will in the second quarter this year, making the Q2 comparisons nearly impossible.

Unlike the HTC One, which has suffered through delays because of component shortages, the Samsung Galaxy S4 uses in-house manufactured processors, panels, image sensors and memory. This should allow Samsung to keep production going even if demand for the phone is as heavy as expected. And if factories in South Korea have to shut down due to heightened tensions with North Korea, Samsung has facilities in China and Vietnam that can be utilized as long as parts made in South Korea can still be exported.

As a Galaxy Note II owner,there is no chance for me to go for S IV but I am sure they will be sold like hot cakes ;)

Agreed, as an proud s3 owner, I didn't see so much upgrade worthy stuff, so I'll either get the note 3 or s5 :D

gahhh, deciding between the gs4 and note 2. I think I'm leaning with the s4 since I'll be renewing a contract in June and the note 2 will be kinda old by then. Wish the note 3 was coming out sooner, that'd be a really tough call.

As a Galaxy S2 owner, I will go for the S4. Didn't need the S3 over S2. S4 is a big bump. Perfect judgement on my part.

I agree with the above as another proud S3 owner. Unless something happens to my current phone, I'll try to wait for the note 3, but the S4 is still very tempting...

S4 is terrible. Its just a big S3 or a smaller Note 2. They didnt even change the design. They only changed their screen to 1080p (like any other smartphone flag ship) and put in a faster processor. Hate me all you want.

u r a moron. The design is different, less rounded, larger screen, higher resolution, thinner..I would consider that different dummy!!! The ram installed isn't just ddr2 like last year, it's the latest and greatest ddr3, Also may I mention the new features, smart stay, smart pause, smart scroll....need I go on??
