Samsung reportedly wants to ship 100 million units of the Galaxy J

Samsung is said to have set its shipment goals for the mid-range Galaxy A and entry-level Galaxy J smartphones at 20 million and 100 million units respectively. This according to a “person briefed on the matter” cited in a report out of South Korea today. It has only been a week since Samsung introduced its new Galaxy A (2017) lineup which brings some of the features from the company’s flagship lineup, such as a waterproof design and a fingerprint sensor, in a more affordable package.

The Galaxy J handsets are Samsung’s entry-level offering and they have proven to be quite popular in emerging markets including but not limited to South America and India. Samsung will be hoping to continue that momentum and ship 100 million units of the Galaxy J alone. If you feel this might be a lofty goal, wait till you hear what the Korean media is saying about Samsung’s goals for the Galaxy S8. It’s claimed that Samsung has set a shipment goal of 60 million units for its upcoming flagship smartphone.

Apart from these phones, I don’t see Core/Grand/Neo/Star/Advance/Mega/Ace/Y/E/Duos range of devices anymore. With the estimation they made now, it amounts… Read more »
