Galaxy S8+ production increased by Samsung

Some people are under the impression that the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 is going to perform better than the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ as the latter would be considered too big by most customers but apparently that’s not going to be the case. A local report out of South Korea claims that after receiving a positive early reaction from retailers, Samsung has increased the production ratio of the Galaxy S8+.

Samsung had previously set a 60-40 production ratio for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ respectively and it’s now believed to have bumped it up to 45 percent of the total production output for the larger model. A further increase is not ruled out prior to the handset’s release later this month.

It can’t be said for sure whether or not this is actually true since Samsung normally doesn’t comment on supply chain related news. However, one can imagine there can be different reasons for most customers to pick the larger model, perhaps the primary reason being that it has the bigger 3,500mAh battery.
