Galaxy Note 7 users opting for Galaxy S7 in South Korea
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco left 2.5 million premium smartphones users looking for a new device in the market. Some analysts predicted the end results as a short-term gain for Apple or Google Pixels. Some are speculating about customer’s loyalty towards Samsung. And if the latest reports are anything to go by, consumers in the home country are indeed sticking with company in tough times.
According to local research firm Atlas Research & Consulting, 32GB variant of Galaxy S7 ended up topping smartphone sales on a week ending October 12 with 16.1 percent market share. Last week, nearly 15,000 units per day got sold across top three carriers. Normally, Samsung considers 10,000 units sold per day as a ‘hit’ tag. The Korean giant may have something to cheer about, finally!
After a big update to Galaxy S7/S7 Edge’s ‘Always On Display’, Samsung is expected to unveil Blue Coral variant of its 2016 flagship. That should further make Note 7 users to feel more at home.
