Last week it was reported that pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were lower than their predecessors over in South Korea. Samsung has since refuted those claims by saying that if anything, pre-orders were stronger than expected and if the latest numbers provided by Yonhap News (via Pocketnow) are accurate, it certainly looks to be that way.
According to the report, they claim that the Galaxy S7 has managed to sell 100,000 units within its first two days of availability over in South Korea. Breaking it down further, it was suggested that 60,000 units were sold during the handsets’ first retail hours, and the other 40,000 were bought up over the course of the next day. Interestingly enough it seems that the Galaxy S7 appears to be more popular than the Galaxy S7 Edge, a very different story from last year.
Note that the 100,000 units were just for the South Korean market, meaning that if we were to take into consideration the other markets that the handset was being sold it, we’re looking at a much, much higher number. The official figures from Samsung have yet to be released, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge’s numbers were on par with last year’s figures, or if it even managed to outsell its predecessors.
