According to a new report, Samsung has drastically revised its delivery target for the Galaxy A23 5G for this year. Remarkably, the South Korean giant has reduced shipments of the Galaxy A23 5G by a whopping 70%.
Earlier this year, Samsung planned to ship around 12.6 million units of the Galaxy A23 5G and 17.1 million units of the Galaxy A23 4G. However, the revised Galaxy A23 5G shipment target for this year is below 4 million units. Well, the reason as reported by the elec, has something with “mysterious and unknown problem‘ with this particular model.
Before the revised delivery targets, total shipments for both the 4G and 5G models of the Galaxy A23 would have been 30 million units, about 10% of Samsung’s total annual shipments.
Samsung conducted a month-long investigation aimed at “mysterious and unpublished” issue that caused a serious problem with the operation of the handset. This tracking number change was also due to the company having to change its preferred development partner. Previously, Sunny Optical was chosen as the developer of the 50MP main camera with OIS on the Galaxy A23 5G. For the 4G model, Partron took up the same work.
Sources show that the problem caused other components of the phone, such as the B. the camera, worked poorly. Although the problem has now been fixed, Samsung wants to throttle production of the Galaxy A23 because of the headache it caused. The company now plans to ship just 5 million units of the Galaxy A23 5G in 2023.
