Galaxy S5 Launch Day Sales Beat Galaxy S4 [Report]


On April 11th, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was released in more than 125 countries. This included crucial markets like North America and Europe, as well as emerging markets across Asia. Safe to say that it was one of the biggest coordinated smartphone launches of this year, one that was bound to eclipse that of its predecessor. A report coming out of Korea suggests that Galaxy S5 launch day sales have surpassed Galaxy S4’s sales on its launch day last year.

According to ZDNet Korea, launch day sales of Galaxy S5 are up by more than 30 percent over its predecessor. In some European markets the demand is believed to be twice higher for Galaxy S5, with people even lining up outside stores in a few cities to get their hands on Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone. The report also claims that sales would have been even higher on launch day had stock not depleted in certain regions.

If the report is correct and sales continue to escalate, the Galaxy S5 could soon hit multi-million sales figures quicker than the Galaxy S4. Samsung is due to extend the smartphone’s availability in 25 additional countries over the next few weeks, and undoubtedly there will be a lot of customers there waiting for the next big thing to drop.
