Samsung to have 10 million Galaxy S8 units available at launch
Samsung Galaxy S8 has been mentioned by a lot of rumors lately, and it seems like this flagship might be the one to erase the traces of the Galaxy Note 7 failure. Samsung seems to be taking everything very seriously since the latest rumors claim no less than 10 million units have been ordered for the April launch.
According to suppliers who spoke to ET News, Samsung delivered a production plan earlier this month. This plan states that first batch of parts is scheduled to reach the manufacturing plants next month, with mass production expected to begin in March. While the 10 million figure seems impressive, this is exactly the amount of Samsung Galaxy S7 flagships sold in the first month on the market of the lineup, and also the company's record.
Unfortunately, Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to be around 20 percent more expensive than its predecessor. Obviously, the higher price also comes with specs and features to match it. The rumors mention an Exynos 8895 Octa or Snapdragon 835 processor (depending on region), 8 GB RAM, dual 12 MP main cameras, an iris scanner, and two sizes - 5 inches and 6 inches.
