The industry insider and a famous leaker, Ice Universe has revealed that Samsung market share in China is increasing day by day and has faced a jump of more than 200%. Earlier in January, it stood at just 1%, but as of March 10, it has soared to 3.6%. Reports give the credit of this to the recently-announced Galaxy S10-series.
The new line of Galaxy S10 flagship devices was launched on March 8 and has outperformed the meager sales of the Galaxy S9 series by a huge margin in China, which helped Samsung market share rise prominently.
In fact, the number of Galaxy S10 and S10+ units sold within the first two hours of pre-orders was allegedly equal to the double of sales achieved by the Galaxy S9 and S9+ during the first day.
This doesn’t seem to be the case only for the Chinese market. In both the UK and the US, the Galaxy S10 series set a new pre-order record for Samsung. The biggest hit among the series is the camera beast Galaxy S10 Plus.
Most of the analysts are convinced that Samsung’s flagship trio will achieve sales of between 40 and 45 million units by the end of 2019 which will undoubtedly give a huge push to Samsung market share globally.
While this is a long term prediction, the short term sales performance is even more impressive. According to reports, Samsung is near to shipping 10 million units of Galaxy S10 series until the end of this month.
