It is no secret that Samsung’s latest flagship handsets — the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge — have been selling like hotcakes across the world. However, according to Korean sources, Samsung is very well en route to selling 10 million units of the handset in just 26 days since the launch of the phone. 

The source stated that Samsung expects to ship 10 million units of the handset since their global launch on April 10, which is very well achievable.

“The two new phones are drawing impressive responses. Samsung aims to ship 10 million S6s and S6 Edges in 26 days after the devices’ global launch. That target is achievable,” said a source.

The 10 million units are in addition to the 20 million pre-orders that Samsung had already received before the launch of the handset.

Another source of Koreatimes said that the Galaxy S6 edge has been selling like hot cakes, with Samsung’s official in Korean stores saying the device is in short supply, corroborating previous reports.

The report also claims that Samsung sold 50,000 cumulative units of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in India, which is about 4 times that of what the Galaxy S5 sold on its launch day. In addition, the company had received total pre-orders of 40,000 units of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the country.
