According to Korean media sources, Samsung's CEO J.K. Shin confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S4 sales figures are solid, with over 40 million units sold since the release of this Android flagship handset back in late April 2013 when it reached 327 carriers in 155 countries.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 high-end smartphone took off with 10 million units sold during its first month after release, reaching the 30 million mark only three months later. Now, the number of units sold all over the world is headed towards the 50 million barrier, so the rumors about Samsung rushing development of the Samsung Galaxy S5 were nothing more than mere speculations.

In addition to the official confirmation of the sales numbers, J.K. Shin also mentioned that the company is working on fixing the problems with the Chinese batteries used in some Galaxy S4 handsets that caused leaks or even explosions.

Older rumors claimed that Samsung is also developing solid state flexible batteries, but this technology is expected to arrive in 2015 so even if the rumors prove to be true, most chances are that Galaxy S5 will not feature such a battery.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
