Manufacturer suggests that shipments are currently above expectations without actually giving any solid figures.

Exactly how much of a success the launch of the Galaxy S7 is proving to be will have to wait until Samsung's latest financial results are made public. Nonetheless, Samsung's new Mobile CEO Koh Dong-jin expressed satisfaction to reporters in South Korea when questioned on the sales of the Galaxy S7. He said that initial sales "look good", but declined to mention any figures or numbers.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 began on March 11 and have already exceeded sales expectations in key markets like China, Europe, and India. The numbers for Europe are reportedly as high as 250 percent over initial pre-orders of the Galaxy S6. Pre-orders in China have also reportedly exceeded 10 million.

The South Korean manufacturer is causing quite the stir with its latest flagship smartphones. Aside from the heavy advertising campaign, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge continue to win awards and receive praise for having the best displays, best cameras, and even for being the best smartphone according to Consumer Reports. We recently awarded the smartphone a 91 percent in our full review of the device.

Competitors to the Galaxy S7 include the LG G5, iPhone 6S, Huawei Mate 8, and the unannounced HTC 10
