    According to a new report out of South Korea, Samsung's production facility in Vietnam has now started mass production of the company's next flagship smartphone. Production is said to be in full swing as Samsung is expecting healthy demand for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. An official of a company that supplies cameras for Samsung Electronics is quoted as saying that component suppliers are working on raising their yields significantly as well since Samsung has now ramped up production.

    As previously reported, Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in most markets across the globe simultaneously. This means that South Korea may not get preference this time as Samsung seeks to tap into the broader global demand for its flagship products to ensure that it doesn't have to deal with supply constraints in key markets.

    According to the report, Samsung has set the initial production volume of the Galaxy S8 to over 10 million units and that it's going to mass produce 4.7 million units in March and 7.8 million units in April. It's unclear if the Galaxy S8 Plus is going to have priority in terms of production quantity.

    None of this has been officially confirmed by Samsung because the company rarely comments on its production schedules. It did confirm recently that the Galaxy S8 will be unveiled on March 29.
