Samsung claims 20M pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

The Galaxy S6 is one of the best-looking devices Samsung has ever made, and it may already be a huge success as a result. The Korea Times reports that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have already racked up 20 million pre-orders worldwide, citing an anonymous executive from a European carrier.

Samsung mobile chief JK Shin also hinted that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge could be a monster hit for the company. “To be honest, pre-orders of the two Galaxy variants from our major clients are really huge,” he told the press last week at Mobile World Congress.

Samsung’s fans seem to prefer the flagship Galaxy S6 over the Edge variant, with the standard version grabbing 15 million of those pre-orders. That’s likely a result of an increased cost for the curvy smartphone, though Samsung hasn’t announced an official price for either model in most markets. However, The Korea Times notes that in the Netherlands the phones are set at €700 and €850 off-contract.

It’s still unclear if Samsung will be able to beat Apple when it comes to sales for its latest flagship phone. The Cupertino company managed to rack-up 20 million pre-orders in China alone for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We’re not so sure the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge can keep up, though the new phones are already off to a solid start.
