Analyst predicts 11 million Galaxy Note 4 and 1 million Galaxy Note Edge units will be shipped in 2014

Samsung is done with the announcement of its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4. At the event it also unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge. Both devices are set to hit the market later this fall but an analyst believes they won’t set new milestones for the company.

A Hyundai Securities analyst expects Samsung to ship 11 million units of the Galaxy Note 4 and just 1 million units of the Galaxy Note Edge. The former’s shipments won’t eclipse that of its predecessor, Galaxy Note 3, which was released around the same time last year.

As far as the Galaxy Note Edge is concerned the analyst believes that since this device’s manufacturing process is likely complicated it will result in fewer shipments, lending weight to reports that Samsung’s new device with a wraparound display will be available in limited quantities.

This sentiment is echoed by other analysts as well, which means that they don’t expect the latest Galaxy Note to perform better than its predecessor. Though it should be pointed out here that shipments don’t necessarily equal to sales. Ultimately the performance will be judged by how many units Samsung is able to sell to consumers, and those numbers are rarely released.

I moved onto Sony and have to say I prefer Samsung’s interface better than Sony. Samsung has tons of user friendly options.

Android updates seems to lack on all Android phones. Sony, Samsung, LG, Lenovo, etc etc. Every single one of them are HORRIBLE when it comes to updates.

Especially Sony. The latest update has caused the battery to drain way too fast. Check out the forum. People are mad.

“Samsung is done”? announcing and releasing is another thing. Why the announcement of these phone then weeks to wait to get won in ones hands.

Samsung being quiet could be good for the washing machines/Tv business the phone world is different, no point trying to copy Apple but your customer service/ phone release dates are not on par.

Can’t see them releasing anything (Note 4) in next few days as Apple wave will hit. Looking like another 2-3 weeks wait, that’s way to long and they wonder why they’re losing money from the phone game.

I couldnt agree more… and i work for Samsungs retail space.. if Apple is ready to have their devices in peoplea hands by the end of the month Samsung should be as well! The messed up part is that we dont even have a release date for the Note4 in the US… So when a customer comes in the store looking for the “The Next Big Thing” they’ll see Apple’s newest but wont see Samsung’s… and while people are lining up to pre-order apple trash, those of us who want Samsungs latest offering are left to sit here and twiddle… Read more »

Really? You can already order it online, and get in stores by Friday. While Samsung has not even made public the countries where you can get the Edge, nor the price of the Note4, nor any release date whatsoever.
