Samsung’s Galaxy Round sales are meager, said to be around 10,000

Samsung_Galaxy_Round_Official_01

It doesn’t seem that its curved display is attracting consumers. Sales figures for Samsung’s Galaxy Round are said to be just under 10,000 units. As we know already, their Galaxy Gear smartwatch isn’t doing so hot either. For one, availability for the Galaxy Round is nowhere near that of a flagship like the Galaxy S 4. Also, a curved display is not going to automatically convert attention into sales. And as always, cost is driving away consumers. If Samsung actually makes the Galaxy Round compelling at a reasonable price with worldwide availability, they would likely see much better numbers. Perhaps adding a self-healing back plate like the LG G Flex would help?

    Wow… You consider yourself a tech writer. Everyone should know that these are proof of concept devices. If they sell a few then great but they aren’t intended to be mainstream phone. Go back to writing about rumours.

      The numbers are poor, but I never said that they should be sitting in the millions. I was just expecting see to better numbers than this.

        Price I’m guessing was also the issue and the fact it is only sold in South korea

        The numbers are poor? Does Samsung have a massive stockpile laying around? I’m pretty you need to get off your Samsung hating bandwagon and report on the device for what it’s done, not you personal opinion on its sales figures.

          Samsung hating bandwagon? I own a Samsung smartphone, blu-ray player, and fridge. Plus, they have an office in my community. Believe me, I do like Samsung. In reference to my report, I reported exactly what the sales figure is said to be at. Then I added what could be factors hurting it. If you disagree with those factors and my opinion on the sales figure, I completely respect that.

    These were never meant to be best sellers everybody knows that but as we know Alot of these tech sites just post things without thinking 1st.

    @ happy dog your right
