Samsung’s Galaxy S6 sales off to a blistering start; T-Mobile claims their Galaxy S6 sales have nearly doubled their total sales of the Galaxy S5

If T-Mobile’s sales are indicative of how the other carriers are faring, the little traction and sales Samsung may have lost last year with their Galaxy S5 are now nothing to worry about considering the numbers their new Galaxy S6 is putting up. According to T-Mobile, sales of the Galaxy S6 have already nearly doubled the total sales of the previous S5. Consumers have wanted Samsung to change things up a bit as they viewed the S4 and S5 as minor iterations rather than a new device. With the new S6, Samsung decided to finally change things up a bit with a revamped look and finally parted with their plastic materials and opted for a more “premium” look/feel. The reviews of the S6 have bode very well for Samsung and it seems nothing will slow this train down.

What do you guys think of the S6? I know not everyone is on board with Samsung’s decision to go with glass and removing expandable storage alongside the removable battery (including myself), but it is refreshing to see Samsung listening to it’s critics and changing things up a bit.

In November of last year, Talk Android reported that the ball was already moving on squeezing over 700ppi into the Note 5’s AMOLED screen. A year before that, Samsung unveiled a roadmap during its Analyst Day to illustrate its ambitions for screen resolution advances in their devices, and projected that in 2015 at least one of its products would support UHD (4K).

Now, according to a recent leak provided to Phone Arena, it appears that Samsung is gearing up to begin production of a UHD Galaxy Note 5 with a whopping 748ppi! Not stopping there, the leaker indicates that there will also be a dual-edge variant of the device (though that’s not that surprising) with a bump up to 762ppi.
