According to Yonhap News, Samsung has shipped 10 million units of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge combined a month after the smartphones were released. The two were launched on the 10th of April.
An anonymous “high-ranking Samsung official” told the site, “The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have already surpassed 10 million.”
This may seem impressive, but Samsung sold more of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 in the first month of their release. Both hit the 10 million mark in less than a month.
Although it looks like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are off to a slow start, analysts are still optimistic that the two smartphones will sell well. Some predict that 70 million units will be sold by the end of the year, while others are more conservative at 50 million.
To recap, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) (some units ship with cameras made by Samsung, while some units ship with cameras made by Sony), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh battery for the the S6 and a 2,600 mAh battery for the S6 Edge. The S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g, while the S6 Edge measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0 mm and weighs in at 132 g. They run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top. The two are clad in metal and glass for a more premium look and feel.
