Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge pre-orders exceeded expectations

Although the numbers are not public yet, the president of Samsung’s mobile division confirmed that pre-orders have been stronger than expected.

Although the Samsung Galaxy S7 flagships proved to be even harder to repair than their predecessors, these handsets bring back the microSD slot, offer IP68 protection from the elements, the world's first Dual Pixel camera on a smartphone, and much more. All in all, they offer plenty of reasons to buy them, and it looks like the amount of preorders even managed to take Samsung by surprise.

According to Reuters, Koh Dong-jin thinks the amount of preorders was "stronger-than-expected" and also revealed that "Samsung expects the S7s to help revive sales in China, the world's top smartphone market where researchers say the Korean firm is lagging its competitors."

Various analysts claim the Galaxy S7 lineup will close the year with weaker sales than last year's Galaxy S6 family, but that remains to be seen. Since Samsung officials did not mention any numbers yet, we will probably get back to this topic as soon as they - or at least one of the many market research firms watching the mobile industry - come out with some data.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
