It seems Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S5, is selling pretty well around different parts of the globe. We’ve seen several reports regarding its success, and some suggest Samsung plans on selling 35 million units of the device.
The popular UK retailers Phones 4U and Carphone Warehouse revealed that the sales of Samsung Galaxy S5 are twice compared to the last year’s flagship device on the first day alone. It’s not just the first day sales, the pre-orders retailers received were much higher compared to the Galaxy S4.
What’s even more interesting is that 95 percent of the purchases made through Carphone Warehouse signed up for a 4G contract, while 99 percent of Phones 4U customers who purchased the handset signed up for a 4G contract.
This will definitely come as a pleasant news for Samsung as the device is doing well in Europe on two big retailers, who also partnered with Samsung to open Samsung Experience stores across Europe.
As a quick refresher, the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 5.1-inch 1080p display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB storage with a microSD card slot, 2,800 mAh battery, 16MP camera and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system.
