Earlier this month, Samsung took the wraps off their latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Previously, it was reported that Samsung boosted the production of the devices to 13 million from 12 million for the month of March-April.
According to a new report, Samsung may ship as much as 46 million units of the Galaxy S6 in 2015, as per Citibank’s analyst Henry H Kim.
Previous forecasts amounted to 38 million so it’s a pretty significant bump — 8 million units in total. Furthermore, the analyst also believes the success of the Galaxy S6 will also have a positive impact on the company’s mid-range line up as well.
The bank still expects the company’s profits to decline despite the forecasted success of the flagship device. They estimate that Samsung will report a 1 percent decline in profits over the first quarter of 2015, but will enjoy a 39 percent increase once the Galaxy S6 starts contributing to the company’s sales.
Samsung Galaxy S6 do bring a different design language, and we’ve previously heard that carriers have ordered almost 20 million units of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge across the globe. What remains to be seen is how well it performs when it comes to consumers. We’ll update you as soon as we get to hear anything more.
