Samsung has been quite vocal about its plans to turn the Galaxy S4 into the bestselling smartphone in history. This morning we are learning that the company is expecting to sell over 10 million Galaxy S4 devices in the first month alone.




Citing supply chain sources who are intimately familiar with Samsung's projected sales reports, DigiTimes is reporting that Samsung could ship as many as 30 million Galaxy S4 phones in its first quarter of sales alone, with 10 million of them flying off the shelves in the first month.


The company has lined up launches in 50 countries and more than 300 carriers, which will no doubt boost its initial sales numbers. Unlike HTC's One and Apple's iPhone 5, the Galaxy S4 is not expected to see any delays in shipping because Samsung actually manufacturers most of the components in-house, which is a huge advantage over the competition.
