With the Galaxy S III already reaching 20 million units sold and the Galaxy Note with 10 million units moved in a year, Samsung has great expectations for the new Note. They go as far as saying that they expect it to sell two times the current model, meaning 20 million units, according to JK Shin.
The same official predicted 30 million Galaxy S III units sold this year, a figure which he may not be that far from. The new Note will start selling in October and it will pack a very fast 1.6 GHz quad core processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 5.5 inch HD Super AMOLED screen. It also has LTE connectivity, WiFi, HSPA+, dual cameras (8MP at the back and a 1.3MP shooter at the front), NFC, the new S Pen and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Can you imagine 20 million people eager to get the new Note?
I expect some very strong promotions during the Christmas time and other winter/autumn holidays, considering the price of the newcomer is pretty big. Carriers will also play a big part in this product’s success. It remains to be seen if people will embrace the newcomer or take advantage of the Galaxy Note 1 price reduction.
