Analysts are still revising the expectations for how Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge power duo will perform this year. Forecasts began at 38 million, but then a Citibank analysts pushed them up to 46 million.
Now Yonhap News is quoting DRAMeXchange, which is predicting another 20% bump for a total of 55 million Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge sold in 2015.
The two flagships will go on sale in April and in that first quarter of availability they are expected to reach 22.2 million sales. Samsung has previously revealed that carriers had pre-ordered 20 million units.
The following quarters will see 16.2 million and 12.5 million units respectively sold to consumers.
Of course, by that time it’s competitors will have launched – the HTC One M9 is going on sale tomorrow, the LG G4 will be announced soon and there’s the rumored Galaxy S6 Active for those who lament the loss of Galaxy S5’s IP67 rating.
