Samsung expects Galaxy S8 sales to outperform the Galaxy S7

In the days leading up to the Galaxy S8’s official announcement, it was rumored multiple times that Samsung expects the Galaxy S8 to perform much better in the market than the Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S7 was no slouch either, in fact, it single-handedly carried the flagship baton for Samsung throughout the entire year after the Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued.

Samsung has now made its expectation public. The head of Samsung’s mobile business Dong-jin Koh – who was very confident about the Galaxy S8 during yesterday’s presentation – has said that the company expects the Galaxy S8 sales to beat those of its predecessor.

A sales target was not revealed by the mobile division boss so there are no hard numbers to go on, at least not officially. Samsung did say last week that the Galaxy S7 set a new internal record for first-year sales so the Galaxy S8 has quite a job ahead of it if it’s to overtake the Galaxy S7 in sales.

The s8 is a handsome phone and feels thin in the hand even though it’s thicker than the s7 in depth. Actually more comfortable than the s7 that is to it being 1.5 mm thinner in width.

There is no way to turn it off and it eats up around 1/2 GB of ram. In apps management the disable button is disabled and biggest worry is that Samsung will be using… Read more »

I won’t be getting one at launch as they’re only selling two colours in the UK, period.

I was playing with S8 and 8+ today, in Carphone Warehouse. While the phone looked great, I couldn’t get over how slippery it was. A smashed phone waiting to happen. To hell with journalistic “premium” looks and build- lets have common sense and a phone that is not form over function- a practical phone more than a pretty one.
What complete knobhead decided to use glass back and front on a phone ???
