Sales of Samsung Galaxy S8 Top More Than 5 Million
An unnamed company official confirmed the milestone to Korean outlet The Investor. “Although we cannot provide detailed figures, the sales are going smoothly around the globe. The combined sales already are beyond 5 million units,” the official said.
This means, Samsung has been selling 200,000 units per day since launch. Samsung released the two phones on April 21 in South Korea, the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Availability expanded to some European markets, India, and some other countries over the following weeks. Samsung said the flagship smartphones will reach some 120 countries by the end of this month, including China.
It’s not an official number, but analysts from Counterpoint estimated that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge hit 10 million units in three weeks from launch. The phones went on to garner sales of 55 million units by April 2017.
Industry watchers said Samsung is expected to sell 20 million units of the Galaxy S8 by the end of the second quarter. Annual sales are estimated to be between 50 million and 60 million units.
