Earlier this month, Samsung announced that the over 10 million units were sold of the Galaxy S4 in under one month. Obviously, The sales will slow down as the time passes but, according to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue, Galaxy S4 sales will hit 80 million units this year.

“Galaxy S-4 demand in the first month of availability has been incrementally better than our estimate of 10M units,” Sue wrote in a note to clients on Thursday. “In comparison, the S-III took nearly 2 months (50 days) to achieve the 10M units mark. Our broad-based channel checks at U.S. stores indicate that demand for the 16G S-4 devices remains strong with 32G Black devices mostly sold-out and 32G White devices yet to make it to the stores.”

He continued, “At this pace, the GS-4 is likely to cross 20M shipments in 2Q13, potentially reaching 80M S-4 unit shipments in CY13. We expect the new version of Samsung’s Note (III) to hit retail shelves in September. We expect Apple to have an updated multi-device smartphone portolio [sic] with the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPhone mini this year.

It will be a major achievement for Samsung if the Galaxy S4 does manages to hit these remarkable sales figures. The Galaxy S4 is already the fastest-selling Android device of all time, taking the crown from the Galaxy S III.
