We suspected that the Galaxy S6 would be a strong seller for Samsung, and the latest news from T-Mobile confirms just that.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge

The Samsung Galaxy S6 officially launches on April 10, but pre-orders and online presales of the device have rocketed it up above its predecessors. According to T-Mobile, the Galaxy S6 on at least that carrier has sold at twice the rate of the Galaxy S5.

Here's what T-Mobile had to say about the situation:

Since T-Mobile began shipping—and selling—the Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge on March 27, customer response has been through the roof. In just the first 10 days, sales of the new Galaxy S 6 series at T-Mobile are already nearly double those of the Galaxy S 5 – previously the most popular Galaxy phone ever at T-Mobile. Likewise, in the first 10 days of HTC One M9 sales, the flagship phone has already surpassed sales of the HTC One M8 during the same time period.

We don't have numbers for the other carriers, but we'd expect that they're all seeing large preorder numbers for Samsung's newest flagship. Considering the almost completely opposite reaction that reviewers and the public have had from the Galaxy S6 to the widely disappointing Galaxy S5, it's no surprise to see the newer model selling at a much faster clip.
