Over 10 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge placed in China

Samsung appears to have a hit on its hands with the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. The new flagships are outselling their predecessors by quite a margin and from what we gather Samsung’s new flagships are performing very well in one of the most lucrative smartphone markets on the planet. Research conducted by our colleagues over at SamMobile China shows that the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge are on track to net more than 10 million pre-orders in the People’s Republic.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge have been open in China since March 11. There are eight retail channels through which customers in China can pre-order the new handsets. Customers have pre-ordered over 6.35 million units of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge from one of the biggest online retailers in China, JD.com. Pre-orders at the retailer Suning have crossed 1.3 million units while retailers Gome and Lynx have already sold out of their pre-order inventory. Therefore, it’s likely that total pre-orders for the new Samsung flagships in China will cross 10 million units and may very well reach 15 million by the time pre-orders are closed on March 18. Looks like Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh’s prediction about a return to form in China is right on the money.

I am extremely pleased with the success of the S7 and S7 Edge. I was going to purchase the S7 Edge but I’m a Note man so I’m waiting for the Note 6 release, which I believe is going to be brilliant in sales as well.

Finally, the S7 is a true seller like the S3′s & S4′s.
