Announcement comes from companies CEO JK Shin

Samsung launched its Galaxy S4 smartphone back in April and the device has proven to be incredibly popular. It took the smartphone about two months to sell 20 million units and four months after launch to hit 30 million units. As the phone has aged and competition increased, it's sales pace has declined.

The Galaxy S4 sold only about 5 million units in August. However, Samsung CEO JK Shin recently stated that over 40 million Galaxy S4 smartphones have been sold globally since the device launched. Considering the phone is been around for about six months, this is an impressive feat for Samsung.

Samsung has continued to roll out some interesting new products following the launch of the Galaxy S4. Most recently, Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The Galaxy Note 3 has impressed both reviewers and customers; however, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch has proven to be rather unloved in many reviews.

It was an idiotic goal in the first place, regardless of Samsung's planted trolls. No way in hell would that phone hit 100m with all the competition out there. It didn't make sense from day one.

Agreed. I bought my daughter a Nexus phone because I didn't care to pay that much for a GS4 when the Nexus was a whole lot cheaper. For Android smartphones there are a many different choices to choose from, I didn't feel my daughter needed all the features of the GS4 and so I was able to get her a cheaper smartphone without all the bell & whistles and she is extremely happy with it. And of course, now my younger daughter wants a Note 2/3...sigh.
