According to a new report, Samsung has reduced the orders of its flagship device, the Galaxy S5, in anticipation of the upcoming iPhone 6.
The report originates from Taiwanese shores, citing supply chain sources, and said that Samsung has decided to cut the orders of their flagship device by 25 percent.
Apple iPhone 6 is expected to be the next big thing by the Cupertino company, mainly because it’s said to come with a larger display compared to the current iPhone. Rumors suggest Apple is working on two new versions of the iPhone 6: one with a 4.7-inch display, while the second one will come with a 5.5-inch screen size.
The report says that Samsung is a little worried since consumers are holding out for Apple to unveil its iPhone 6, which usually happens in the fall — possibly in September. As a result, the orders for the third quarter have been reduced by 25 percent, reducing the production from 21 million in the second quarter to just 15 million for the third quarter. It’s also said that Samsung even reduced the orders for the Galaxy S4 from 6 million units to 5 million.
Well, it seems the competition is becoming fierce in the smartphone industry. Even if we consider the Android OS, there are some excellent devices already in the market. HTC One M8 is one of them while the recently announced LG G3 is the second one, which has received a warm welcome in its home country.
There’s no word from Samsung, but we’ll update you as soon as we come across any other report. What do you think about this?
