Samsung may have anticipated more global excitement and hype with the official announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy S5, but it didn't chart out that way. However, folks over at South Korea have already been officially treated to the device, and Samsung is now claiming that irrespective of the device's somewhat mellowed reception, it's actually experiencing stellar sales in its home country.
According to Yonhap News, around 7,000 Galaxy S5 units are currently being sold each day in South Korea. And if the current pace for the same continues, 1 million S5s will reach out to Korean customers in less than five months.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 might not yet be available for all around the world, but the customers in South Korea, the manufacturer's home market, have been able to purchase it since March 27. And that's basically two weeks earlier than the rest of the world.
However, the Yonhap report did mention previously that the South Korean availability wasn't smooth with its sources mentioning "limited availability through carriers and crackdown on subsidies for new subscribers."
"The daily average sales of the Galaxy S5, launched in the home market on March 27, came to around 7,000 units, slightly below the 8,000 units posted by its predecessor Galaxy S4 and far behind the 10,000 units for Galaxy S4 LTE-A," the official Yonhap report states.
As of now, Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy S5 in a number of markets around the world starting this month.
