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.

Do you realize how small apps are? Its hyperbole to state that SD cards are now useless.
You're making a non-issue into a travesty.

I know that, but perception is still 99% of reality.
Most possible potential SGS4 ownrs don't have the same technical savvy as either you or I. They saw a very powerful 16GB smartphone selling for $600-$700 that has only 7GB of usable storage. The common response was
"WTF!!?? No Thanks! I'll buy one of (LG,HTC,Motorola)'s 32GB smartphones"
If Samsung wants to know why GS4 sales are not as strong as the SGS3's, maybe they should reflect on what it is they made available to the world markets when the released them.
“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
