Samsung reportedly bags record 20 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge

At Mobile World Congress 2015 Samsung unveiled its two new flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, which bring an impressive power package in a beautifully designed and constructed body that’s already receiving a lot of praise. A new report claims Samsung has received a record 20 million pre-orders for these smartphones, 15 million for the Galaxy S6 and 5 million for the Galaxy S6 edge. To be clear these numbers reflect the units that carriers around the world have ordered from Samsung, not what they’ve managed to sell to customers.

A report from The Korea Times cites a “top executive at a leading mobile carrier” who said that Samsung has received 20 million pre-orders for the new smartphones. “This is the record,” the executive is quoted as saying, he also added that his company has come away with a “positive impression” of all aspects of the two new Galaxy S smartphones. Samsung’s carrier partners really do seem to be betting big on these devices. During MWC Samsung’s mobile chief J.K. Shin said that pre-orders of the two Galaxy variants from the company’s major clients “are really huge.” Shin expects sales of the Galaxy S6 to be higher than its predecessor.

Hey @SHADICKUN I live on the same planet as you. We all r expressing our views for S6 shit. So dont take it personal dude. Yes I’m still saying that, S3, S4, S5, S6 they all look same. I didn’t say they all share same material though. But they all look same. I’m here because I’m a Sam fan otherwise why would I waste my time here? You dont have to look at the back side to see the difference dude. Just see iPhone, do they l look same? Thats called innovative designing. So far, only you’re the one claiming… Read more »

You are full crap. If you cant afford the s6, no one is forcing you to buy it! Why the hell you need an SD card to back up??? use a USB and back on a PC. What is so hard about that?

Go buy an M8 or something. Dont waste your time commenting here.

I want that green S6 edge…but i think ima wait til the S7 cones out next year..These 2 phones are great..and im really anxious to see what Sammy has in store next year..considering project zero was a huge step in the right direction. I’m assuming it will be better next year. Maybe i will think twice depending on what the Note5 does later on towards the end of the year. Plus my S5 is good for a couple more major updates. And will most likely bring some of the S6/S6 edge features over to my device(that’s what normally happens)

Carrier orders mean nothing. You need people to pre-order/buy.

At least, they can count on me preordering as soon as they get available here.

Carrier pre-orders usually give a hint of what’s about to come… The pre-orders reflect an expectation, there are some serious calculations behind this. So it means at least something. 😉

Yes we will and since you are the only ‘smarter’ person here who knows inside-out can happily pay 3 times and enjoy 1000 times faster phones. Stunning beauty? Whats stunning in S6? They all look same, and if you’re taking about Edge, please consider buying iPhone 6. Edge has nothing but a dual curved screen with no useful feature. I mean come on Samsung, you made edge/curved screen just to add 5 contacts shortcut and some color splash for those 5 people? Is that all? Really? And people calling it ‘stunning beauty’? 😮 Samsung didnt even bother to put Note… Read more »

Hey Kayess88, where are you live seriously, in a cave ? When you said they all look same…Are you blind ? Are the S6 look same as S5, S4, S3, etc.. Just look at the BACK & SIDE to make the difference. Glass is the same as Plastic ? Aluminium too ? And just for your ignorant-side, yes the S6 Edge got some feature of the Note 4. You can think the S6 Edge is just gimmick if you want, but you can’t avoid the fact that the device is unique. If you don’t understand something, do research before saying… Read more »

Wait until Apples comes out with the iPhone Edge. He’ll be all over it and even on on youtube crying about how Samsung stole the Edge idea from Apple.

Just ignore this guy. He sounds like he’s about to commit suicide because of the Success of Samsung. LOL

If only. Anyway, I can only try and talk people out of their stupidity once. After that if they continue to show signs of advanced asininity, then it’s on them. But for the record, here are just a few reasons i would choose the S6 line over the iPhone (assuming there exists another dimension in which I would ever consider buying an iPhone.) Build quality. The S6 is made of Aluminum alloy 6018, which is 50 percent stronger and more scratch resistant than the lower tier 5XXX alloy that the iPhone is made of. The S6 line have a much… Read more »

That cant be true. Samsung is just creating hype again just like they did with every other Galaxy series launch. Im samsung big fan and disappointed from S4 than S5 and now S6. No card slot, no spare battery, low powered battery and no water proof and no new design. They all look same, let it be S3, S4, S5. So disappointed, its better to buy One Plus One at half the rate of S5 and same specs.

That’s because your sd card 600% slower then the included hd, it not supported sorry to say with the hd being used it as no room on the ISO for a start

Please do. Enjoy it and forget about Samsung please. If you are unable to understand that saddling the S6 Edge, using UFS 2.0, with an SD card that will be approximately 30 times slower, will ultimately slow down the phone, sometimes as much as 1000 percent, then do go to the One Plus One. If you are unable to appreciate the stunning beauty of the new S6 line, and it’s features, make that move baby. You will be happier and we won’t have to listen to it.

Halelujah sister, I feel saved allready.. No really, I totally agree, people who dont understad what they actually get shouldnt bother about S6 or the S6 edge. Thats obviously too advanced devices, they won’t be able to enjoy them to it’s best use anyway, and they save the money too 😉

A Japanese friend of mine told me that there are 8 MILLION pre-orders for the s6 line in Japan alone. This (if true) would be an incredible turn around because as he said himself, the Japanese do not typically buy Samsung phones, due to the political issues separating Japan and South Korea. Again, I take this with a grain of salt, but it still interests me a great deal.

I am not pre-ordering one… However, I am still buying one. I won’t be pre-ordering because I still don’t know which one I want. The S6 or S6 Edge… I can always turn the Edge functions off if I don’t want them but I can’t use them if I don’t have it. Then again, I don’t think I really care for the Edge features. A PREDICAMENT I TELL YOU! I can’t even decide what colour to get. The blue looks so nice but apparently it’s poor in person and I don’t know what statement bright blue makes for an adult… Read more »

Haha I got the same problem. I really like the blue but I don’t want to be sending any signals, so I’m probably going to get a more boring colour.

Depending on the day I go to the Samsung store I might be with you on the boring colour front… However, I might take the leap of faith and get the blue and hope that I don’t regret buying it. Then again, I don’t want to regret NOT getting the blue one.

You really don’t need an SD card holding you back. Samsung’s ePoP memory is over 600% faster than any SD card at class 10. And 600% is indescribable in terms of the speed difference. Especially when talking storage.

is that going to give me 160GB of storage for my music and videos like my Note 4 ? no ? what good is 600% extra speed when i need 600% extra space ?

adam.kirby5

adam.kirby5
Okay, this is a random revisit but I just had a light bulb moment… zurkx says he has 160GB of music on his Note 4. Let’s do some Maths here… Let’s say somehow you actually get the FULL 32GB inside of your Note 4 (32GB is the only model to my knowledge). 32GB – operating system = 24GB free. 128GB SD card, again in the completely impossible situation of actually getting all 128GB. 128 + 24 = 152. Providing you have 0 apps and a full 32GB and 128GB usable on each component (which isn’t possible) you still don’t have… Read more »

If you need that much storage you’re doing something wrong. Anyway this is a good start of the year for Samsung

Also ZURKX, please point me to the website where I can find a 160GB SD card or phone. That’s AFTER the space taken up by the MBR and formatting META DATA.

adam.kirby5

adam.kirby5

You’re exaggerating far too much. Firstly, why do you need 160GB of music storage? Online services such as Spotify trade all of that in for more songs than any mobile storage device can hold and a small fee. Secondly, 600% more from 128GB is almost 1TB. And even a top class SD card CANNOT hold your music. So something tells me you’re lying.

Why do you need 160GB for music? I spent my life in Athens and London. In London I use Three UK that gives me 25GB of data. That enables me to have unlimited music streaming from Google Music All Access and TuneIn. In Athens I use Cosmote. They don’t give much data but I don’t care. They give enough so I won’t miss notifcations/emails etc and music? I make available offline whatever I feel like listening every day. So I will buy either the 64GB or the 128GB version to have space for camera videos etc. You don’t need to… Read more »
