Galaxy S7 and S7 edge score more than 10 million orders in China

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge score more than 10 million orders in China
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge units in China may not have the Samsung logo plastered on them, but are still selling like hotcakes there, it seems. The latest report out of Samsung's China efforts is that the handsets managed to score no less than 10 million preorders there, which is a sure indication of the interest that Samsung evoked with its newest duo. 

Coupling this with info about European preorders that have allegedly been two and a half times higher than what we experienced with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and Samsung may very well be back in the mobile profit game when all is done and dusted, and everyone who wants an S7 or S7 edge has gotten one. 

Samsung has been doing well with diversification of its profit sources, and the phone business now accounts for less than 40% of its income overall, but it's still a very significant chunk, so if the two Galaxies sell well, its shareholders will for sure have a reason to celebrate.

take note of what!!! The population in China is 1.36 BILLION with a B and that's 2014 census data so that equates to less than 1%

Samsungs taking risks, that Apple won't, and it's paying off. As I said, Apple better take notice. The iPhone 7 better not be a minor upgrade.

So what?! Have you ever sold 10M of anything? NO! So shutup loser! Who asked you what the population was? Guess what, the world has 7 billion people. That means China is roughly 1% of the world population. See how that works? You're such an idiot with your fanboy stupid one liners, yet your pundits give me flack... Dude, please get a life.

Um...if China has 1.36 Billion people and there are 7 Billion people in the world, in what way is that 1%? Every time you post something it becomes more and more obvious you have no idea how companies or anything work.

I was like, wouldn't 1 billion be 1/7 of 7 billion, or around 14%

Bubba. For any company to take 1% of the population is pretty amazing. Think about how much 1% is in that country and the cost of everything else.

10 - 15 million PRE-ORDERS!?!? No idea if this number can realy be taken seriously... but if so, that would mount to a pretty f**king huge amount worldwide. Especially given that samsung has to those type of die hard fans that apple has where millions of people would order no matter what they introduce. Will be interesting to see if they can keep that huge momentum over the next months

Why would this be so hard to believe...i mean they are in the business of making and selling phones...they're worldwide known for making gud products

because that would result on a global scale to something like 40 million preorders / sells in the first view days? Which would mean Samsung would have sold as many devices during it's first days as they sell normally in a year (Flagship S-devices it is) Therefore I don't think this numbers can be true, because no way Samsung calculated with that amount and has such a hefty stock/productionline ready.

If it's true, I think your extrapolation is probably a bit off. China is currently the largest volume seller of smartphones, compared to say the US and Europe. I'd be surprised if there were more than 2 million preorders in the US or Europe.

If I remember right US is still a bigger smartphonemarket, and if you take all of Europe thats a WAY bigger smartphone market (EU is approx. 500 mio inhabitants)

What? ATT and Verizon along would have at least 5M pre-orders each between them. Considering, Samsung sells up to 30M devices per year in the USA alone, that means the biggest buyers would be with the 4 major carriers and then all the lame carriers after. History has shown that Samsung sells most of its product in Europe and the USA, so obviously they would have more than 2M pre-order sells. Also this article is saying China pre-order 10M phones alone, this is one selling model. This isn't like Apple pre-orders where it would include all selling iPhone models. This is specific to the S7. Which means the USA like had at least 10M easy buy itself.

What kinda fanboy crap are you spewing. When Apple announces pre-orders it doesn't mean every selling iPhone model. It means the newest model, you don't pre-order older models that makes no sense. Like this year when they announce the amount of pre-orders, it'll be for the iPhone 7/7Plus only, not the older versions. Stop spewing lies, gosh you and several other fanboys get on my nerves here with your nonsense.

Based on the latest numbers of the USA for 2015, on;y 5.5% of the population is jobless. That means even if you have a minimum wage paying job, you can afford any flagship phone. Thsi ve China where yes they have over 1Billion citizens with 1Billion of them in one single city and yet less than 10% of the population can afford this phone. Also remember, pre-order include different customers. Those orders include direct orders by customers to Samsung and also carriers orders. I know for a fact in the USA, ATT, Verizon and T-Mobile will each pre-order at least 5M+ phones for their customers with Sprint probably being 1/2 that ans then the total amount of the other guys being 1/2 of Sprint's order. We are talking 20M+ pre-order just from the carriers for their customers, then you have to add retailers like Costco, Best Buy and Wal-Mart who between them could also pre-order at least 5M phones. Come on man. Samsung since 2011 has sold over 300M phones per year making that and average above 80M per quarter. Samsung has already shown that at least 100M phones sold are the sell of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note combined. With the Note 4 and S4 having the highest sales which pushed Samsung sales that year to more than 430M phones in total. That means even in a slow year, Samsung is still selling 40M+ Galaxy S devices and 40M+ Galaxy Note devices. The S5 rocketed to 40M sales in less than 6 months, making it adoption faster than the S4. The S5 is still selling though very slowly due to its low cost. That means when its over, the S5 along could still sell 45-50M and same for the S6. In fact I would go to say, none of the Galaxy S models have sold less than the 50M the S3 sold. The difference would be the S3 did it in a fiscal year, while the S4, S5 and S6 may take longer than a year.

If this is true, then Sammy is well on their way back to their prime GS3 days. China is one of their most important market before Apple and local companies took away market share.
