According to a security researcher from Korea the Galaxy S8 and S8+ sales are starting to slow down. The duo has reportedly sold close to 10 million units in the first two months while the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge saw 12 million units sold in their first two months.
This report has a huge question mark attached to it as Samsung has boasted of overachieving sales of the Galaxy S8 series.
The slowing sales reportedly made Samsung ramp up Galaxy Note 8 production so that it can launch the anticipated phablet earlier, namely on September 10, after announcing it in August.
Yet, that’s hardly any evidence to back up the claims – the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy Note7 were both announced in August and hit the shelves shortly after, so it’s more the norm than an exception for Samsung.
Samsung only recently reincarnated the Galaxy Note7 through the Galaxy Note Fan Edition.
