Samsung targeting sales of 10 million Galaxy S IV devices per month: Report
Samsung's latest flagship device, the Galaxy S IV hasn't even been launched yet and a new report is claiming that the Korean manufacturer aims to sell 10 million devices each month.

BGR reports via South Korean news portal Money Today that Samsung is aiming to sell 10 million Galaxy S IV smartphones and that the company is reportedly planning to keep up to its target each month.

It took Samsung almost two months to achieve the 10 million sales mark for its current flagship Galaxy S III smartphone since its debut in May last year. The figure hit 20 million in September 2012 with the company saying that brisk sales of the S III are helping it retain dominance in the smartphone market.

Global sales touched 30 million in November last year. The company sold 56.3 million smartphones, including its flagship S III, in July-September 2012, representing 31.3 percent of the global market, more than twice as much as bitter rival Apple's share, as reported by research firm IDC in October 2012.

So far, rumoured specs for the Galaxy S IV codenamed 'Altius', include a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with full-HD resolution, 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera, Android Jelly Bean, Exynos 5 Octa chipset and an S-Pen stylus. It is also likely to come with wireless charging support.

The news site also offers additional information regarding Samsung's tablet offerings staying that the company is likely to introduce 12-inch and 14-inch tablet models apart from the currently rumoured 7-inch, 10.1-inch and the 8-inch Galaxy Note.

The latter will be a part of the company's next generation Galaxy tablets that will be branded as Galaxy Tab 3. They will come with and without 3G support and will feature a 5-megapixel camera.

These Galaxy tablets will be developed under the codename "SANTOS" and their new code numbers would be GT-P3200, GT-P3210, GT-P5200 and GT-P5210. Additionally, there will also be a high-end tablet from the Korean manufacturer, the GT-P8200 currently codenamed "ROMA" that will come in 16 and 32GB variants.
