Samsung CEO Dj Koh took on stage yesterday to make some very important announcements regarding the Galaxy S10 models and Samsung’s first ever foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold. He also announced that Samsung has sold more than 2 billion Galaxy smartphones worldwide and the anniversary of the Galaxy S smartphones was probably the best day to make that announcement.
To put that number into perspective, we have around 7.7 billion people on our planet and that makes Samsung’s reach to an approximate 25.9 percent of the human population, which frankly is quite a staggering figure showing Samsung has quite a large fanbase. In comparison to Apple, the Cupertino-based company has sold over 1 billion iPhones during its first decade.
Samsung announced 5 Galaxy models yesterday which include the Galaxy S10E, Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 5G, and the Galaxy Fold during its UNPACKED event. The Galaxy S10E will directly compete with the iPhone XR whereas the other two S10 variants will compete with the iPhone XS and XS Max respectively. The Galaxy S10 5G will remain exclusive to Verizon before it is available to other carriers in the US. As for the Galaxy Fold, it is Samsung’s take on a foldable smartphone and the first ever in the Galaxy lineup.
Do you think Samsung will be able to maintain its record-breaking sales stats in the years to come?
