Samsung Galaxy S4 sales reportedly cross 40 million units
Contrary to recent reports that suggested that Samsung's flagship smartphone for 2013, the Galaxy S4, had failed to get the same level of momentum in the market as its predecessors, Samsung has reportedly announced that it has sold more than 40 million units of the phone, worldwide.

According to Korean publication Inews24, Samsung CEO JK Shin has made a statement that the South Korean electronics giant has sold more than 40 million units worldwide. The news was first reported by GForGames.com.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was unveiled in March, with shipments beginning April. So, this essentially means that Samsung has reached the milestone in a period of six months after the phone hit the markets.

To offer some context, Samsung had claimed in November 2012 to have sold 30 million units of the Galaxy S III till date.

In July, a report claimed that Samsung had managed to ship over 20 million Galaxy S4 units till end of June. The report had also added that it took Samsung Galaxy S III about 100 days to reach this mark, so the Galaxy S4 was selling 1.7 times faster.

It's worth pointing out that RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue has predicted that the Korean smartphone maker will ship 80 million units in 2013.

A recent report had suggested that Samsung was preparing to launch the Galaxy S5 smartphone in January due to disappointing Galaxy S4 sales.

Just to recap, the Samsung Galaxy S4 sports a 5-inch full-HD screen with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, and pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by 1.6GHz Exynos octa-core processor in some regions, and a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor in others. It has 2GB of RAM and a PowerVR SGX544MP3 triple-core GPU. The smartphone comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants but also features a microSD card slot for expanding the store.

The Galaxy S4 sports a 13-megapixels rear shooter and a 2-megapixel one on the front. The Galaxy S4 offers more camera features including dual-shot, employing the use of both front and back camera, an eraser shot mode to remove people from photos, and a Cinemagram like feature called Cinema Photo, among several other tricks. It also offers a number of sensors including a temperature and humidity sensor and motion and gesture control features.
