Samsung Galaxy S 4, which will be presented tomorrow promises to be the best selling smartphone of the year 2013. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Galaxy S3, which has sold over 35 million copies in 2012, Samsung already plans to sell 100 million units of its new smartphone.
But Samsung will you keep it on time? What would be the impact of a concern in the production line? It is clear that an estimated 10 million sales in the first month, any quack in the delivery of components would be a disaster for the South Korean company. Already last year, due to last minute problems with the back cover of the Galaxy S3, Samsung had lost two million sales for the month of May.
The backup plan
It seems this time that Samsung Electronics has taken the lead. According to Greg Noh, an analyst at HMC Investment Securities and Samsung have scheduled a backup plan to avoid such problems.
Galaxy S 4 will be presented in New York, where Samsung beat Apple hopes and regain its position as the market leader in telephony. Some analysts, however, remain skeptical and hope that Samsung provides incremental improvements and updates on their smartphone, rather than just dazzling features right out.
Samsung did not wish to comment on the measures taken to avoid the worries of supply. Apparently according to sources there is currently no problem on that side.
