It seems that Samsung intends to crack the proverbial whip in its factories and manufacturing partners in order to meet the unexpectedly high demand for recently announced Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge smartphones. In fact, the South Korean company is said to produce 13 million units rather than 12 million at first, during the March-April time window. Analyst Henry H. Kim from Citibank has decided to revise that estimate of his, in terms of Galaxy S6 shipped this year, from 38 million all the way to 46 million.
As with what we mentioned about Apple’s estimated 3 million Apple Watch shipment earlier this morning, shipment does not translate to the total number of sales – for all you know, Samsung might just translate half of the shipped devices to sales, which would mean that there are another 23 million Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge handsets sitting on store shelves somewhere around the world, gathering dust.
Well, we do know that Samsung is now the world’s largest smartwatch vendor, and do you think that they intend to be the largest and biggest in whatever that they churn out in the long run? Only time will be able to tell, don’t you think so? Meanwhile, sit tight and enjoy the show.
