Such has been the demand for the new Samsung phone that they have lost 2 million sales as Samsung do not have enough capacity to produce phones at a quicker rate. incredibly the phone is set to reach 10 million sales in the first two months alone! ‘It is simply that demand far exceeded our expectation. But that doesn’t mean we had set a very conservative demand forecast,’ Samsung said.
The key thing for this lauch has been the timing as Apple are not due to launch their phone until the end of this year. There has been a shortage of Samsung’s new phone which was attributed to the a manufacturing error that happened a few weeks back. Also the phone has received its best reviews to date for any phone they have launched. Consumers have been crying out to get their hands on one.
‘Samsung might have been caught off guard by the demand, not because they did not believe in their own products, but because they might have over-estimated the competition,’ said Gartner analyst Carolina Milanesi.
‘In other words, aside from the iPhone and HTC’s oneX there’s not much out there at the moment, which would have certainly helped Samsung.’
