Samsung, trying to retain the competition with Apple, announce that it has sold one million Galaxy S5 units in Germany; the announcement came on the same day while Apple was launching its iphone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the same country.
The Korean giant was hoping to ship at least 35 million units around the world this year, seems to achieve the target easily as it has already sold one million S5 handsets in Germany alone, in record less time, shipping 10 million units worldwide in just 25 days after its launch.
After South Korea, Germany is the second country where Samsung talks about specific sales numbers of the S5. With the remarkable sale, it shows that it has not forgotten the Galaxy S5 after unveiling the Note 4, that is still doing great in the market, though it faces the tough time as users are longing for the latest iPhones and Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 4, against the S5.
Samsung’s flagship phone for 2014 has made some important improvements to certain key areas over the Galaxy S4. The screen and camera are significantly better than those on last year’s model. It comes with 5.08-inches Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. It has a 16MP rear and 2MP front camera and a 2,800mAh battery.
