Over 100,000 units of Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were sold in Korea in the first two days


Last updated: March 14th, 2016 at 08:27 UTC+02:00

Samsung was able to sell over 100,000 units of its current generation flagship smartphones in South Korea within the first two days of the launch. Combined sales of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge reached 60,000 on the first day and 40,000 on the second day.

According to the sales data acquired by Yonhap News, the Galaxy S7 edge accounted for 40 percent of the total sales. The initial pace of sales is said to be roughly on par with the demand generated by the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Samsung claimed that sales on Saturday, which is usually a slow day, were pretty well.

Last year, the South Korean smartphone giant miscalculated the demand for flat screen and curved screen variants of the Galaxy S6. The company produced more units of the Galaxy S6 than necessary and underproduced the Galaxy S6 edge, which affected sales negatively. Hopefully, the company won’t repeat the mistake this year.
