Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4 is already starting to run into supply problems. The company blamed “overwhelming global demand” for the supply being limited, which has caused delays for many carriers.
“We expect to fulfill inventory to meet demands in the coming weeks,” said a Samsung representative told CNET.
Apple has normally been known to face such problems, but the Galaxy series has also been known to hit these kinds of roadblocks starting with last year’s Galaxy S III , though the Galaxy S III never faced severe shortages and delays at launch. Samsung is usually known for having all their cards in place before a launch occurs.
Samsung is launching the Galaxy S 4 on 327 carriers across 155 countries and can also be used on global SIM cards. If you’re looking to get a Galaxy S 4, though, you may have to wait until the demand wears off or until you can manage to find one in stores.
