There have been countless reports on how the Galaxy S5 didn’t perform up to Samsung’s expectations. Clearly the company’s troubles in the mobile market stem from the fact that last year’s flagship didn’t give a stellar performance. That’s why Samsung went back to the drawing board for the 2015 flagship and when it unveiled the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, many said that the new handsets will turn the company’s fortunes around. T-Mobile’s announcement today shows that this just might turn out to be true.
T-Mobile has announced that since it started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge customer demand for both handsets has been through the roof. That’s precisely the words the carrier has used, “through the roof.”
Like many other carriers T-Mobile’s pre-orders went live on March 27th however Magenta was probably the first carrier to ship Galaxy S6 Edge units to its customers.
Since then it has been shipping units consistently despite the fact that Samsung’s official release date for both devices is April 10th. The carrier says that in the first 10 days sales of the new Galaxy S6 series “are already nearly double those of the Galaxy S5.”
Last year’s flagship was actually the most popular Galaxy handset at T-Mobile and that spot has now been taken by Samsung’s new phones.
T-Mobile also noticed similar trend for the HTC One M9. It says that sales of the new device has surpassed those of the HTC One M8 during the same period.
