Let’s face it. 2014 was not the best year for Samsung and its mobile endeavors; last year’s smartphone sales totals were far lower than predicted. However, despite the recent issues with software issues with the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, sales of the new handsets have been fast and furious. You can definitely say that things are swinging upward again for Samsung.
Industry analysts had previously predicted that this year, Samsung would sell 35-50 million units. Now that the Galaxy S6 has launched, Samsung has raised its forecast to 70 million phones for 2015. The company reported receiving 20 million pre-orders for the combined S6 models.

Another executive within Samsung advised sales could be in excess of 70 million units. As to whether that’s blustery rhetoric or a hopeful statement, only time will tell.
