Galaxy S10 sales cross 100,000 units in the Netherlands
Despite receiving rave reviews, many wondered if the Galaxy S10 lineup will be able to surpass the sales of its predecessors due to the growing saturation in the smartphone market. We may have to wait for a couple more quarters to get a definitive answer for that question, but Samsung’s latest flagship seems to be doing well, at least in the Netherlands, so far.
Samsung has announced in a press release that it sold more than 100,000 units of the Galaxy S10 within three months of its launch in the Netherlands. The company claims this is 31% more than the sales of the Galaxy S9 during the same period last year. If the demand holds for the rest of the year, the Galaxy S10 lineup may best its predecessor’s sales in the Dutch market.
Black is the most popular color option
Interestingly, Samsung also offered a breakup of sales based on color, which is very rare. Black emerged as the most popular choice at 50%, followed by white at 20% and green at 18%. This goes on to show that while the Korean company continues to launch exciting color options, Dutch customers are mostly sticking to the tried and tested hues. It won’t be a surprise if the same holds true for other markets as well.
Samsung hasn’t revealed model-specific sales of the Galaxy S10 lineup, but going by past trends, the Galaxy S10+ might have dominated the sales. In fact, the Galaxy S10+ may do better than the Plus variants of previous flagships given the substantial improvements it offers over the smaller and cheaper variants in the lineup.
