We’ve been hearing reports that Samsung is pushing the release of the unannounced Galaxy S5 forward after slower than expected sales of the Galaxy S4. That still may be the case, but that doesn’t mean S4 sales have been bad – Samsung has confirmed that it’s sold 40 million of them.

The device released back in April this year. It took the new handset just two months to reach the 20 million milestone, but it’s obviously taken a bit longer to double it. Apparently these sales are slowing somewhat, as Counterpoint Research claims that only 5 million units shipped in August.

Still, 40 million units in five months? That’s meant to be slower than expected? Sheesh.

We’re expecting to see the debut of the Galaxy S5 in January, possibly at CES. That will mean it releases just under a year after the S4. What improvements could it bring?
