Samsung Galaxy S6 sales forecast now down to 45 million units
Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge arrived bearing high expectations and now it looks like things are cooling down a bit. A few months ago, a forecast mentioned 55 million units from the S6 family expected to reach customers by the end of 2015. Soon after that, the figure was adjusted all the way up to 70 million.
According to an article published by The Korea Herald that mentions a report released by Deutsche Bank and cited by EE Times, "Samsung continues to struggle at the low-to-mid end, while the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge combined look on course to reach a respectable 45 million units this year." If this becomes reality, the S6 family will catch up with the Samsung Galaxy S4, the company's current holder of the annual sales crown that managed to sell exactly 45 million units in a year.
There is still enough time left until the end of the year and we will probably see the forecast adjusted a few more times by then, so stay tuned.
