Samsung Galaxy S8 sells "almost twice as fast" compared to S7... in Korea


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.

"Samsung is OVER" "They won't recover from the Note7" Another day, another loss for the haters.

No surprise really. The majority that bought a Note 7 or that was going to buy one weren't put off by the battery incident. The downside maybe less customers to buy the Note 8.
