Samsung Galaxy S8+ to outsell the Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8+ to outsell the Galaxy S8

According to a new report, Samsung's Galaxy S8+ will sell better than the company's smaller flagship - the Galaxy S8

Yuanta Securities Korea Co. predicts that the annual sales of the two Galaxy S8 handsets will reach about 50.4 million units, with the larger 6.2-inch version taking up 53.9% or around 27.1 million units

Industry watchers claim that users prefer smartphones with larger screens, as they offer a superior experience for mobile gaming and multimedia content. This has been the case with Samsung's flagships for the last couple of years - the edge variants of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 were more popular with consumers due to their larger displays.

While it's hard to argue with these facts, we do have a suspicion that the smaller 2017 flagship could turn out to be the more popular choice on a global scale. 

The smaller Galaxy S6 and S7 models did not have curved screens, while this year's S8 does. A 5.8-inch display diagonal should be more than enough for most people, and pretty much anyone who has had the chance to play around with the two devices will agree that the Galaxy S8 is just more comfortable to hold and use. Furthermore, the higher sales of the Galaxy S8+ in Asia could be attributed to the fact that Samsung is offering an exclusive S8+ version with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory plus a free DeX docking station for anyone who pre-ordered it.

Which S8 variant do you prefer? Did you get the chance to try out both models? Let us know in the comments!

Got the black S8+. I find it no surprise to see larger displays outselling the smaller ones.

I would prefer the smaller one but the battery life is better on the bigger one, so I would have to go with that one, if I bought it.

That 6.2"display is a thing of beauty.....i got me the plus variant...films look epic and all apps seem to work fine in new ratio...not all are supported but in settings they can be turned on regardless of support or not....iris scanning is super quick and fingerprint reader is easy to use if u have a case...and just relearn hpw to use the reader.....overall in my opinion ots the best phone samsung ever made and one of the best ever made...not perfect but damn close...for me at least
