According to a new report originating from South Korea, sales of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have started to slow down. The duo sold close to ten million units within two months of hitting the shelves, while the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge sold twelve million.
The report notes that Samsung has slashed the number of Galaxy S8 units it’s ordering from suppliers, and ramped up production of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, so it can cope with the onslaught of orders it expects to receive when the handset is unveiled on August 23.
People aren’t necessarily holding out for the Galaxy Note 8
It’s daft to assume that declining sales of the Galaxy S8 means that more people are holding out for the Galaxy Note 8, but it’s not like Samsung will have trouble offloading extra units. With die-hard customers willing to pick up anything the firm releases, it can slap a Fan Edition label on a few handsets and sell them at a premium.
