usually mobile price = per unit cost + R&D cost.
more the sales, soon the R&D expenditure are recovered, so company decides to reduce its cost even after keeping same profit margin.

And each year sells more than the past...Duh?

first: not everyone who own S3 or these 50 million owners will not gonna buy again in just a year of release of S3.
Second: Some of S3 user have a two year contract in some carrier, they will wait until another year for new contract and that day samsung has galaxy S5 or whatever and theres a lot of flagship smart phone to chose on that year....and finally some of the S3 user switch to Xperia Z and HTC One.

Actually they are bashing Samsung with this 80 mill prediction, because Samsung predicted 100 mil in one year.

People who are up to date about technology ,innovations , features etc. buy it while who are with old concept they buy apple phone and who are with medium they buy other android phones such as Sony,HTC, LG ,Lenovo etc. Time is changing fast nobody knows tomorrow .Any companies who come with innovations and competitive price they can servive but who do not those things they will be thrown out soon.

Another Samsung marketing strategy...they just want the consumers to attract to buy S4.
