It would be an understatement to say that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are two successful products. According to the latest information, Samsung's 2017 flagship duo has broken the corporation's sales records in Korea, surpassing 1 million sales in a little over a month since the official release.
While Samsung does not officially release sales figures to the public, occasionally, we see a company representative disclosing sales numbers for certain high-profile devices like members of the Galaxy S line.
Speaking to The Investor, a spokesman for the company recently put things into perspective:
On an international scale, however, things are a bit different. Global sales estimates currently stand at about 5 million, which is less than the 7-9 million achieved by the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for the same period during 2016.
Analysts predict that the Galaxy S8/S8+ will achieve sales of about 50.4 million units by the end of the year. The tech giant might have greater expectations than that, but as always, time will tell.
