Samsung cutting Galaxy S4 component orders

Written by Fudzilla staff

Plans to retire S3 sooner than planned

It seems that Samsung’s Android juggernaut is running out of steam. According to Korean tech news site Etnews, Samsung is planning to cut monthly production of the S4 by 10 to 15 percent.

Samsung’s July order for Galaxy S4 parts was enough for about 6.5 million units, roughly half of what was ordered for May. So far Samsung’s orders have been steadily rising since April, but it seems growth is slowing down. In addition, Samsung is apparently planning to phase out the Galaxy S3 sooner than expected. Although it’s last year’s model, the S3 is by no means obsolete and it is still a pretty good buy if you can find an unlocked handset at a good price.

However, it should be noted that Samsung is introducing new S4 generation phones as well, such as the Note III phablet, S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Zoom.
