Early indications suggest Galaxy S4 release to be biggest ever
The dust has just started to settle on the unveiling of the new flagship smartphone from Samsung, and before the handset as even arrived at retailers stores early indications are suggesting that the release of the Galaxy S4 will be the biggest ever.
Samsung has seen the Galaxy S3 sell like hot cakes since it was released last year, but mobile phone retailer Phones 4U has told TechRadar that is has seen a massive increase in demand for the handset since launching its pre-registration page, and looks set to beat sales of the older model.
The handset is set to reach the retailers stores on April 26th, although rival retailer have mentioned the 25th as the day the Galaxy S4 will release in the UK. It seems the device has already beaten rivals offerings such as the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z though, as the retailer confirmed the Galaxy S4 has already received the most pre-registrations of any smartphone so far this year.
Phones 4U are also claiming that the handset will be the most successful sales wise in 2013, which is despite whatever Apple has to offer later this year. The previous model set records of its own and quickly became the most pre-ordered Android smartphone, and 4G carrier EE have also stated the Galaxy S4 has seen extremely high levels of demand as well.
At yesterday’s press event Samsung revealed that the handset would begin launching to 155 different countries with a total of 327 networks from next month, and early signs are looking good for the company.
