We’ve already told you that Samsung isn’t selling as many Galaxy S4 units as it initially hoped for. In fact, the Korean company has reduced July orders to 6.5 million, which is half from its May orders of 12.2 million units.
The Galaxy S4 sales skyrocketed from the day one with Samsung managing to sell 4 million devices on the opening weekend, and hit the 10 million milestone in just 26 days from launch.
The initial demand is leveling off and sales are now slowing a bit. We’re not sure whether the increased competition from other high-end smartphones like the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z has anything to do with this, or this is just a result of Samsung asking too much money for its flagship device. We do know they plan to retire last year’s flagship, Galaxy S III, in hope that will help drive more folks towards the Galaxy S4. Slashing the price could also help… just sayin’… 😉
