Q3 Samsung Galaxy S5 orders down in iPhone 6 anticipation

Apple iPhone 5sSamsung's Galaxy S5 has sold very well, however, the Korean-tech manufacturer has noticed a significant dip in orders for Q3 2014: a 25% cut. This is hardly good news for Samsung, as many believe that this is due to a significant consumer base holding off on device purchases for the upcoming iPhone 6.

According to sales reports from Taiwan, 21 million Samsung Galaxy S5s were sold in the second quarter of this year. In Q3, Samsung will only be shipping 15 million phones. The Galaxy S4 also received a cut from 6 million units to 5 million shipped units. Samsung believes that many possible buyers are waiting for the iPhone 6.

And it's difficult to not understand people's excitement about Apple's upcoming iDevice: rumor has it that it will be the first smartphone by Apple with a screen size that can compete with the higher end Droids: (4.7”), not to mention that it will be dressed up in a scratch-resistant sapphire coating.

However, it is possible other Android handsets like the HTC One M8 and the LG G3 may have also contributed to Samsung's decision to scale back manufacturing of their smartphones. There is only so much space at the top, and although Samsung is king now, in the mobile phone world, newer phones are usually equated with being better ones.
