After the disappointing Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has come back with a bang. The Galaxy S23 was widely considered a success and received overwhelmingly positive reviews. This success also translated into better sales compared to the Galaxy S22 series, and by a significant margin, at least according to a new report.
Galaxy S23 sales far eclipse those of the Galaxy S22
According to data from Hana Securities, a financial consulting company, the cumulative sales of the Galaxy S23 series over the past eight months reached almost 23 million units (22.89 million to be exact). If this figure is broken down for the three models in the range, sales of the Galaxy S23 stand at 8.09 million units, while 4.11 million units of the Galaxy S23+ have been sold. Sales of the most expensive model in the series, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, reached 10.69 million units. In total, sales of the Galaxy S23 series outpaced those of the Galaxy S22 series by 22% during the eight-month period.

Samsung wanted to improve sales of its foldable devices with the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. However, it doesn’t seem like the plan is progressing very well. According to the new report, sales of Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 reached 3.51 million units (2.26 million for Galaxy Z Flip 5 and 1.25 million for Galaxy Z Fold 5) . This is a slight decline compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 (2.28 million) and Galaxy Z Fold 4 (1.35 million), which achieved a cumulative sales figure of 3.63 million units. While sales of Samsung’s latest foldable phones accelerated at launch compared to their predecessors, there appears to be stagnation afterward.
The Galaxy A series smartphones seem to be selling well in India and the Middle East. These mid-range devices sold more than the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series smartphones.
