The Samsung Galaxy S4 is close to hitting retail and we are already seeing some big predictions regarding the demand for Samsung's newest flagship smartphone.

According to DigiTimes, supply chain is predicting shipments of around 10 million units in the first month itself, with close to 30 million for the second quarter of 2013. The phone will be launched in 50 countries worldwide by the end of April.

For most other brands, shipment numbers might not be that relevant but considering the demand for Samsung's Galaxy smartphones in recent times it's quite likely the company will end up depleting the first shipments in record time.

Unlike HTC, which is currently having supply issues for its One, Samsung is said to be in a relatively comfortable position it manufactures most of the components used in its smartphones. Samsung could also move its manufacturing process to one of its other facilities around the world, particularly in China or Vietnam if the tension in Korea rises further.
