Samsung plans to sell 10m Galaxy S4 smartphones per month

Sources suggest huge targets being set by smartphone maker

With Samsung still riding the success of the Galaxy S3 and the news that Apple missed shipping predictions for the iPhone 5, the South Korean company has set its sights high

Samsung plans to sell 10 million Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones every month starting from its release date and then throughout the year, smashing the sales of the Galaxy S3.

South Korean site Money Today reported that industry sources have confirmed Samsung has been ordering huge numbers of parts for the Samsung Galaxy S4 amounting to around 10 million units for the first month.

As with all information of this nature it should be taken with a pinch of salt, especially considering how secretive Samsung were over the launch of the Galaxy S3.

It's also important to note that while successful, it took the Samsung Galaxy S3 almost 50 days to reach just 10 million units, despite the lack of competition from Apple.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumoured to feature a Full-HD 1080p 4.99-inch display featuring almost no bezel which would mean that Samsung's new smartphone could retain the dimensions set by the already large Galaxy S3.

SamMobile recently reported a source which claimed the Galaxy S4 would feature an impressive 2.0GHz quad-core processor and would come with 2GB of RAM making it potentially one of the fastest phones available.

The same source goes on to claim the new smartphone will feature a 13MP camera on the back capable of shooting 1080p video and a 2MP front-facing camera for video calls.

With the iPhone 6 rumoured to be launching alongside a budget iPhone, Samsung will be keen to establish a firm foothold in the smartphone market during 2013.
