While many see the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge as more refined devices over their predecessors with no major changes, it appears these differences matter enough to be well-received by consumers. In the first two days of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge’s sales in South Korea, as many as 100,000 combined units were sold. If this is any indication of the devices’ success, they are off to a good start.
The sales of these two devices in South Korea revealed that the Galaxy S7 is more popular among consumers there; it made up 60% of sales in the first two days. Other than that, Samsung managed to sell 60,000 units of the S7 and S7 edge in the first day, while the other 40,000 units were sold on Saturday; Samsung was quick to point out that Saturdays are usually “slow days” in terms of sales.
According to Yonhap News, these numbers are roughly on par with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge opening sales last year, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This shows that the S7 and S7 edge are at least as desirable as their predecessors, and seeing how these two devices are much more complete smartphones, it wouldn’t be surprising if they will outsell last year’s devices.
Samsung will be holding several roadshows across Malaysia for the Galaxy S7 edge from the 18th of March onwards. If you’re keen to get your hands on Samsung’s latest flagship (and grab yourself some goodies as well), you can learn more about the roadshows here.
