Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Rack Up 20 Million Orders

A recent report in the Korea Times indicates that Samsung has received over 20 million unit orders from mobile carriers around the world for the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The number is a record for the company.

The breakdown of the orders is as follows: the Galaxy S6 got 15 million orders while its expensive counterpart, the Galaxy S6 Edge got 5 million orders.

Both smartphones are a significant departure from how Samsung has done things in the past. At the cost of the expandable memory slot and removable battery, the S6 and S6 Edge come with a premium glass and metal design and slim profile.

Other changes include the company’s own Exynos processors, faster UFS memory, DDR4 RAM and software that’s bloat free compared to previous generations.

In light of the new changes, the sales of the new smartphones are expected to be much better than the last generation.

If you want a deeper look at the smartphone and how it compares to the HTC One M9, you can do so here.

  • Galaxy S6 would have been THE PERFECT smartphone for me, only if Samsung had retained water-proofing and given an Fm Radio, also they should have maintained its length. But now, I think I will have to wait for Xperia Z4 and LG G4 announcement. For now, Lumia 640XL is the best set for me, keeping price and functionality in mind

  • These are just the number of people interested in buying the handset and not the actual number sold. Why is this important to report is beyond me!
