Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ after creating a buzz in the entire smartphone space with innumerable rumours, was finally launched on March 29. Which shows that its hardly just ma month that these flagship phones have been unveiled. Within such a short span of time, Samsung beats all records and manages to sell over 5 million units of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ together.
Well, this shouldn’t come as surprise to the consumers. Yuanta Securities analyst Lee Jae-yoon had earlier predicted that Samsung will be able to sell out nearly 50.4 million units of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ together. However, if a report coming from the Investor if to be considered, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer has achieved the predicted target in a months time. This being said, with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ Samsung is all geared up to set the benchmark.
The report comes from The Investor, which notes that a Samsung official has confirmed the same. It also revealed that the figure of 5 million is based on combined sales figure of the two smartphones — Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Further throwing more light on the report, the Samsung official has reportedly said, “Although we cannot provide detailed figures, the sales are going smoothly around the globe.” He further notes, “The combined sales already are beyond 5 million units.”
In terms of specifications, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ sports a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Super AMOLED 2K display respectively. Both the flagship phones were launched with Samsung’s very own Exynos 8895 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. However, the global variant of the devices is little different as they are powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor.
After almost setting a bench market with this year’s flagship phones, Samsung is currently working on fiery Galaxy Note 7 successor, dubbed Galaxy Note 8. Furthermore, Samsung is also preparing itself to re-launch a new version of the Note 7, which they will reportedly call as Galaxy Note 7R. This refurbished device will not be much different than its older version, however, the only difference that it could boast will be in the battery set up. If the reports surfacing the web are to be believed, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7R will come with a much smaller battery and will be almost half the price of the Note 7. However, Samsung in a statement to India Today Tech has confirmed that the newer version of the Note 7 will not come to India at all.
