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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
