Samsung will ship 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones in April says report

Samsung wants to sell 10 million units of the Galaxy S4 smartphone in the last week of April according to a report published by Taiwanese news outlet Digitimes. A significant portion of these would have already been preordered either on SIM-Free or on pay monthly.

The Korean Chaebol also reckons that it will sell 30 million Galaxy S4 in the first 90 days, which means that it expects the rate of shipment to remain sustained for a quarter (that’s an incredible 133,000 smartphones per day). The Galaxy S4 will start shipping in 50 countries from the last week of April and from 26 in the UK.

The UK version of the Galaxy S4 will be running on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC clocked at 1.9GHz. The company’s marketing budget for the S4 is expected to be in the region of around £80 million initially.
