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

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
