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.

That's fair, I suppose, but Sammy's sales numbers aren't exactly trending higher. That said, I can't fathom why someone would purchase an S4 over a Google edition Nexus. Even if I absolutely "needed" a new handset right now I'd wait until the Nexus 5's hit the channel.

Keep in mind you are talking about the iPhone 5 which has been out for over a year now compared to the GS4 which came out at the end of April.

Absolutely -- but as I mentioned in my first post looking at the SGS4's sales trend there's no way it'll come close to 89M even at the 11 month point.
