Samsung underestimate the Ultra Demand

S21 unit sales higher than S20, by up to: 

30%

according to early sales figures

 

Ultra demand in the UK

According to our data, over 60% of the Samsung S21s we insured were S21 Ultras. This stands in contrast to the numbers of handset shipped to the UK by Samsung. Who seemed to underestimated the demand for the Ultra, causing a shortage in supply and missing out on some sales.

Out of all 26 million units shipped, 10 million were of the vanilla Galaxy S21, 8 million Galaxy S21+, and the other 8 million - Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Record number of pre-order

Whether Samsung will break its sales record with this is still too early to say. The year is still long and a lot can still change.

Regarding the UK market, Samsung has already set a record. Never before has it sold so many S21 models during pre-sales. Remarkably, the expensive S21 Ultra accounted for half of all pre-orders. Exactly how many orders Samsung sold isn't reported so it's hard to verify and compare.

However according to our sales data, the S21 Ultra is outselling the other models by a long way.
