Report says Samsung aiming to sell 60 million Galaxy S8 units this year

Himanshu, 09 January 2017

According to a new report out of Samsung's home country of South Korea, the company is aiming to sell around 60 million units of its upcoming Galaxy S flagship smartphone (likely to be called the Galaxy S8) in 2017.

"The tech giant has requested its partners to supply (parts) based on the tech giant’s 60 million shipment goal," the report quotes industry sources as saying.

The 60 million figure, if you compare, is higher than the yearly shipment numbers for some of the recent Galaxy S flagships: the Galaxy S5 (45 million), the Galaxy S6 (45 million), and the Galaxy S7 (48 million, expected).

The report also notes that the Galaxy S8 will be launched sometime in April (which is inline with what we've been hearing recently), adding that the mass production of the device will begin a month prior - in March.
