Reportedly, DJ Koh also said that, compared to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S7 sales should be higher. First month sales will be crucial, that's why Samsung is throwing in a free Gear VR headset to those who pre-order or buy an S7 between February 23 and March 18.
It's been estimated that Samsung shipped about 38 million Galaxy S6 smartphones in 2015 (considerably less than initially planned). If everything goes well for Samsung, the company may very well ship over 40 million Galaxy S7 units by the end of this year. But we'll see about that.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are not just more powerful than the S6 and S6 edge. They also offer various new important features - including dust- and water-resistance, microSD card support, an always-on display, and liquid cooling technology.
