Galaxy S5 Sales In South Korea Are Reportedly “Robust”

galaxy-s5-preview-mwc2014-33Against Samsung’s wishes, carriers in South Korea have released the Samsung Galaxy S5 a lot earlier than originally planned, leading to retailers around the world considering something similar as well. Why does it matter, you ask? Well Samsung is currently producing the handset at the moment and by releasing it early it could impact their supply chain.

In any case like we said despite Samsung probably not being too happy about it, sales of the handset have been good, at least according to Yonhap who is reporting that sales of the Galaxy S5 in South Korea are “robust” and are averaging about 7,000 units sold per day.

While that might sound like a lot, it is a little behind the Samsung Galaxy S4 which managed to sell an average of 8,000 units per day, although to be fair the Galaxy S5 in South Korea is not subsidized at the moment, which means that there are some who might be still on the fence as the asking price of $820 is a little dear.

Perhaps sales of the Galaxy S5 will be a lot better in other countries once it has been released on the 11th of April, but for now we guess it’s still something, right? Samsung has yet to release the official figures yet but presumably we will be hearing something soon, especially if the handset manages to do just as well, if not better, than its predecessor.
