Samsung sells 100,000 Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge units in Korea in two days
Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
After two days on the market, the regular Galaxy S7 accounted for about 60 percent of the total sales.

Samsung seems to be right on target with the new flagships, as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge managed to sell better than expected during their first two days on the market. According to industry data published on Sunday, the company sold more than 100,000 units of Galaxy S7 series handsets on the Korean market in the first two days after the official launch.

The same sources reveal that Samsung sold 60,000 Galaxy S7 units on Friday and 40,000 on Saturday. The data highlights that the most popular model was the regular Galaxy S7, with about 60 percent of the sales, while the Galaxy S7 Edge accounted for the remaining 40 percent. This initial sales performance in South Korea "is roughly on par with demand generated when the Galaxy S6 series phones reached the market last year."

Samsung officials declared themselves happy with the Galaxy S7 sales on Saturday, usually considered to be a slow day. We will probably get back to the Galaxy S7 sales soon since the global sales data might be even more interesting, so stay tuned.

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.
