Over 10 million Galaxy S7 pre-orders placed in China so far
As we already know, Samsung managed to sell about 100,000 Galaxy S7 units in South Korea during the first two days these new flagships have spent on that market. On the other hand, the fact that China will add at least one more digit to that number is no surprise, given its size. However, the amount of orders already placed in advance of the official launch is impressive - apparently over 10 million already, in less than a week.
In China, pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge have begun on March 11th. Eight major retail channels are taking pre-orders and more than 6.35 million units have been reserved via JD.com. While Gome and Lynx already sold out their inventory, pre-orders at Suning crossed 1.3 million units. All in all, more than 10 million units should have been reserved already and it would not be a surprise to see the number reaching 15 million by March 18th.
Samsung mobile head DJ Koh recently said they have big hopes for the Chinese market and it looks like he was right to say so. We should have more Galaxy S7 pre-order and sale numbers soon, so stay tuned.
