Prior to the release of Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S22 series misses its sales target by 30 million unit
Updated: Jan 6
Things don't appear to be going well for the Galaxy S22 series since the Galaxy S23 is about to be announced in about a month. The Galaxy S22 series apparently missed sales expectations by approximately 30 million units. According to South Korean media site FNNews ,the primary factor contributing to the disappointing sales is what appears to be a decline in interest in traditional flagship phones in favour of foldable handsets.
As if that weren't bad enough, Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 4 allegedly hasn't done so well either, failing to achieve a market share more than 10% in the US, Canada, Japan, or China. Just one year ago, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 performed better.
Another setback for Samsung's fiscal year was that its ASP (Average Sales Price) increased by just 2% overall, whereas Apple saw a 7% increase in both its ASP and sales compared to the same time previous year. Samsung's income also plummeted by 4% and its market share shrank by 0.2% from the previous year.
The Galaxy S23 series retains the potential to be among the best-performing Android flagships in early 2023 thanks to the overclocked version of the most recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that will be included in the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra in every
region of the world. A 200MP primary camera with a special Samsung ISOCELL sensor is anticipated for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which will also reportedly include a large 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a maximum brightness of more than 2,000 nits with E6 panel and LTPO 3.0 tech. The super-premium Galaxy S23 Ultra will come in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options, and all models will have 12GB RAM.
