Samsung Bets On Galaxy S6
“To be honest, pre-orders of the two Galaxy variants from our major clients are really huge,” Samsung’s chief of mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun, boasted.
Henry Kim, analyst for Citibank, has revised his estimate for Galaxy S6 shipments this year. He is now expecting Samsung to ship 46 million Galaxy S6 handsets this year, up from his previous estimate of 38 million.
Kim also believes that interest in the S6 will also pull in sales for lower-priced handsets. On top of that, he sees the S6 as being good for the supply chain as a whole.
“Success of GS6 will have positive chain impacts on the mid- to low-end market leadership and in-house component businesses,” he said
