Samsung's profits and revenues might have taken a major hit in recent months, but when it comes to the sales of its latest flagship, it seems the company might not have much to worry about. During Samsung's earning conference in South Korea today, Senior Vice President Kim Hyun revealed that the Galaxy Note 4 has been selling better than the Galaxy Note 3 in North America and Western Europe. Earlier reports had said that the number of Note 4s sold within a month fell short of the Galaxy Note 3 by 500K units, but it looks like the performance of the Galaxy Note 4 is actually better than its predecessor in two key regions.
Analysts have predicted that Samsung should be able to sell 11 million Galaxy Note 4 units by the end of this year, and given it has apparently sold 4.5 million units within a month, it shouldn't be hard to reach the 11 million sales target put forth by industry experts. To remind everyone, the Galaxy Note 4 went on sale in South Korea by late September, and in other major markets in the second/third week of October. It brings considerable improvements over the Note 3, including a higher-resolution display, a much more accurate S Pen stylus, the latest Snapdragon/Exynos processors, and a 16-megapixel camera with hardware-based optical image stabilization.
