Samsung Expected to Sell 55 million Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Units in 2015

Samsung has seen a downward trend in its profits over the past year and a half which has led Samsung to rethink its brand. Samsung went and left all of the reasons that were argued to lead to a bad design and came with renewed successor to the Galaxy S5.

Amongst retailers and carriers combined, Samsung has reportedly gotten 20 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets. This has led analysts to revise their expectations for how Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge duo will perform as the year progresses. Now, the latest estimates are that 55 million handsets expected to be sold this year alone.

Samsung has already ramped up production on both S6 and S6 Edge due to high demand

As a proof of high demand, Samsung has already ramped up production on both handsets and is set to produce an additional 13 million handsets by the end of April. Both the handsets are set to launch on April 10 and Samsung is hard at work to avoid any shortages. According to the report, Samsung is forecasted to sell 22.2 million units of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in Q2 2015. Following Q2, the next quarters are expected to reach 16.2 million units sold and then a further 12.5 million handset sales in Q3 and Q4 respectively.

While these estimates may seem high, it won’t be easy for Samsung to achieve these numbers with competition increasing with every generation. The recently announced HTC One M9 will go on sale this week in Taiwan and launch in other markets simultaneously with the Galaxy S6.

Samsung’s biggest competitor will probably be the LG G4, which launches later this year

Perhaps the biggest competition to the S6 duo will come from Samsung’s home country where LG G4 will take it on as the world’s best. The G4 is estimated to launch in Q2 and is rumoured to bring some new features like a curved screen, a direct competitor to S6 Edge. Sony’s latest flagship Xperia Z4 and the next flagship-killer Oneplus Two will also be launching soon so Samsung Galaxy flagships have a lot coming their way over the rest of the year.

    • For shamelessly copying the iPhone 4,5,6 design and removing useful features like the user replaceable battery, water/dust-proofing and the SD card slot?

      • Apple copies Samsung’s “Big Thing” screen and you call it adjustment as per customer needs.

        Samsung makes a phone with metallic body and you thrash Samsung.

        Grow up!

        • Samsung copied the following in the Galaxy S6:
          iPhone4 glass back design.
          iPhone5 speaker grill design
          iPhone6 sides
          Samsung Pay is a clone of Apple Pay.

          Thanks for playing along though. Cheers

          • Based on your logic, apple has copied Samsung gear. Also samsung pay is not a clone, because it can work on existing nfc card readers. Whereas you need special nfc card readers for Apple pay.

            • “Based on my logic” how has Apple copied the garbage flop GEAR watches now? Have they copied the design elements? My logic refers to the galaxy S6 making a metallic design by copying generations of iPhone’s design. GFY bro.

          • Galaxy S6 does not have a glass back. It has a metal back.
            Lots of phone have speaker grills below the body, even since before the iPhone.
            iPhone 6 copied HTC One and Lumia 925’s side.

          • Q-Mobile uses Android OS same as samsung :P hope you got the point its the war of OS and Samsung is leading from Android …..App ke baton se app China waley Lumia waley lagtey ho…. @$$ hole get life iSucker ;)

            • HAHAHA you sound very upset my friend. And that kinda language only proves that you are just another uneducated dude who likes dirt-cheap android phones that SamSung produces.
              Speaking of leading the Android war, Samsung only wins because it sells cheap android handsets in the third world countries and its flagship phones fail to sell and become MEGA FLOPS like the S4 and the S5. That is why they reported 60% drop in profits in the holiday quarter and 67% in this past quarter. Your denial is hilarious but thumbs up for trying though ;)

  • Is mn pochne ki kia zururat he .ap apple ki koi bhi product daikh ln wo her lihaz se apne dosray hareefon se bht behter hoti he apple mn paidari he jb ke samsung mn shining he or yad rakhna her chmakti cheez sona nhe hoti…………
