Over the coming weeks we are set to see the new Samsung Galaxy S4 released after a long wait. Demand for this new model is set to be sky high and Samsung are going to need to produce a large volume of handsets to ensure that customers are not disappointed. It has now been reported that this high level production could well cause delays on the production of a rival manufacturers handset.
Latest reports are suggesting that a massive 100 million Samsung Galaxy S4 devices are set to be produced by the Korean manufacturers over the coming months to fulfill the high demand for the phone. Such large scale production is rumoured to have a negative effect on Apple’s production of their next generation iPhone handset. This latest news has come courtesy of Jefferies & Companys analyst Peter Misek who commented “The enormous 100 million S4 build plan is leading some suppliers to say that they will reallocate resources away from Apple”. The popularity of this new phone is set to be so high thanks to the success that the Galaxy S3 has enjoyed over the past few months. Over 60 million of these handsets have been sold and its excellent reputation is part of the reason why the new Galaxy S4 is so eagerly anticipated. Click here for more Samsung Galaxy S4 news
This latest news will come as a blow to Apple who are already suffering a number of reported manufacturing issues for their new iPhone handset. The iPhone 6 now looks unlikely to appear until 2014 in light of these problems but that does not mean that the public will not see a new device from Apple this year. The iPhone 6 may not be arriving but Apple are set to release the iPhone 5S, a revamped version of the iPhone 5 and also a new iPhone Mini targeting the cheaper end of the market. Those waiting for a brand new premium phone however will have to wait until at least 2014. We are expecting the new Samsung Galaxy S4 to arrive late during Q1 this year or early in Q2 and the general release will follow a big launch event expected to happen at some point during March.
