Galaxy S5 sales doubled S4 sales in some countires on launch day
Samsung has offered up a few [vague] details on the launch day sales of the new
Galaxy S5 smartphone
. The Galaxy S5 went on sale around the world on April 11 and racked up more sales on opening day than the previous Galaxy S4 was able to muster.
Samsung noted that the S5 doubled the sales of the older phone in some countries, but declined to give specifics. Sticking with that theme, Samsung says that it received millions of orders for the S5, but didn't offer a specific number of actual sales.
Looking back at previous Galaxy smartphone launches, the previous generation Galaxy S4 reached the
10 million units sold mark in about a month
. The Galaxy S3
hit 10 million units in about 50 days
, while the Galaxy S2 needed five months to reach that same milestone.
features a 5.1” 1080p display, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor paired, fingerprint reader, 16MP camera, 2800 mAh battery, and USB 3.0 connectivity.
The Galaxy S5 is available across 125 countries including the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Latin America, and most of Asia.

I should have been more clear? There was no reason for me to explain why I was asking the question the important part was the question in the first place. My question was very clear you just happened to assume something else and I don't write out my responses in case someone like you is reading it I write them out for those who can actually answer the question, which still hasn't happened. Instead of answering the question people just rate down. The point of my post was the question not my reasoning for the question.
DT last time reported that the S5 would support up to a 64gb micro SD card which isn't true it supports 128gb but when I asked that question in that article no one answered the question and the article was never edited to fix the error. Elsewhere I read that the US version of the S5 might be shipping with a snapdragon 801 while elsewhere I read the European version might be an 805. i shouldn't have to explain all this just to get an answer for "800 OR 801!!?!?!".
