Sales Of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Lineup Are Reportedly Even Lower Than The S20
Samsung seems to be in the middle of a pickle with its Galaxy S lineup after a new report claimed that the company’s latest Galaxy S21 lineup is selling even more slowly than the previous model — the slow-selling Galaxy S20.
According to Business Post, six-month sales for the Galaxy S21 lineup sits at around 13.5 million units.
That’s a 20% decrease from the sale period for the S20 lineup and a massive 47% decrease based on numbers for the Galaxy S10.
What’s particularly interesting about this revelation is the fact that Samsung did try to fix things with the transition from Galaxy S20 to Galaxy S21. The company slashed prices by $200 across the board while still packing the devices with high-end hardware and flashy looks. None of that seems to have helped sales however.
While Samsung does have the Galaxy S22 to come, it’s suspected that most customers are now transitioning to more affordable devices from the same company.
Strong competition from the likes of Huawei and Xiaomi won’t be helping Samsung’s numbers, either. And then there’s Apple. The company announced strong iPhone sales during its recent quarterly earnings call and it still has the iPhone 13 launch coming next month, too.
All things considered, Samsung will likely be pinning its hopes on the upcoming refreshes for its folding phones.
