Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S-series of smartphones was never a hard sell. The high-end specs and features usually saw customers returning year after year, as well as being able to attract new customers on board. However following the snafu that was the Galaxy Note 7 last year, will customers be a bit more hesitant?
That might not necessarily be the case. According to a report from The Investor in Korea, it seems that if anything, Samsung thinks the Galaxy S8 will be a runaway success, so much so that the company has reportedly set a target of shipping 60 million units of the upcoming flagship handset.
This is a huge deal because in previous releases, the only phone that shipped more than the Galaxy S8’s projections was the Galaxy S4 which shipped 70 million units. Last year’s Galaxy S7 was at 48 million, and the year before that was 45 million for the Galaxy S6, so it seems that Samsung thinks that the Galaxy S8 will beat last year’s figures by a pretty huge margin.
It is widely believed that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will be a beast in terms of specs and features, with the latest rumor hinting at a Windows Continuum-like feature. In any case we guess only time will tell if the Galaxy S8 will be popular enough to warrant that many units being shipped, but in the meantime are you guys more or less set on getting the phone even without knowing the official details?
