    Samsung to produce 10 million units of the Galaxy S8 for its launch in April

    If a new report published by ET News is anything to go by, it would appear that Samsung has confirmed it will produce 10 million units of the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 in time for its expected launch in April. The firm reportedly delivered a production plan to its suppliers earlier this month, which reveals that the first batch of parts will arrive at manufacturing plants in February, with mass production scheduled to start in March.

    So why 10 million? Well, Samsung managed to sell an astonishing 10 million units of the Galaxy S7 in the first month of it hitting the market, which was a record for the company. It clearly has confidence in the new features the Galaxy S8 will bring to the table as it's assuming that it will be received by consumers in a similar light. With a lot of former Galaxy Note 7 customers now looking for new handsets, it has an opportunity to make back some of the seven trillion won it lost last year.

    For those who haven't been following the leaks and rumors closely, the Galaxy S8 is believed to be an extremely powerful device with an Exynos 8895 Octa/Snapdragon 835 CPU (region dependent), possibly 8GB of RAM, dual 12MP rear-facing cameras, an 8MP selfie shooter and an iris scanner. It'll also be available in two models — one with a 5-inch display and the other with a mighty 6-inch panel. Unfortunately, though, it could cost up to 20 percent more than its predecessor. Samsung could also be moving to on-screen navigation keys, a move that might be necessitated by the company's goal of fitting a larger display in a form factor similar to the Galaxy S7 lineup.
