Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S smartphone, likely S8, has been in a lot of rumors in the past. We also speculate that the tech giant is prepping up for its release some time this year, most probably.
According to a new report (via Investor), the Korean tech giant is planning to sell around 60 million units of Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone in 2017.
“The tech giant has requested its partners to supply (parts) based on the tech giant’s 60 million shipment goal,” an industry source told The Investor.
If we take close look at the picture, the shipment goal for the galaxy S8 is much higher than the company’s past flagship devices over the past three years: S5 (45 million), S6 (45 million) and S7 (48 million).
The Investor report quotes another industry source as:
“As the release date of the S8 has been postponed to mid-April, Samsung seems to have set a more ambitious goal than before to make up for the loss caused by the Note model, which has so far led Samsung’s smartphone business every first quarter,”.
