Galaxy S7 tops smartphone sales in South Korea after Galaxy Note 7 discontinuation

Samsung is now trying to sell as many Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge units that it possibly can after it was decided to discontinue the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7. Local research firm Atlas Research & Consulting has released a report which shows that the 32GB Galaxy S7 proved to be by far the most popular model. The report mentions that this model topped smartphone sales on the week ending October 12 in South Korea with a 16.1 percent market share.

Data from the country’s top three carriers reveals that nearly 15,000 units of the Galaxy S7 were being sold every single day over the past week. In this particular market a daily sales mix of around 10,000 units is considered a hit so Samsung’s 2016 flagship is clearly outperforming the benchmark. Sales of this handset are recovering now that Note customers are being given incentives to opt for other Samsung smartphones. Samsung is also expected to launch a Blue Coral version of the Galaxy S7 to further boost sales.
