Report: Sales of Samsung Galaxy 8 are up 15% Over Galaxy 7

The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were big hits in the marketplace, but it appears that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are doing even better. At a recent conference in Taiwan, a Samsung mobile executive reports that the new model is outselling its predecessor by 15%.

Ironically, “word on the street” was just the opposite – that the Galaxy S8 lineup was “underperforming” in sales from the previous Samsung model.

Analysts are still scratching their heads a bit on the numbers due to the fact that Samsung stopped publicizing its sales figures a couple months ago.  Of course any company is going to downplay rumors that its sales are lagging, especially if there are not hard numbers to compare with previous handset models.

Samsung had troubles last year when some of its batteries contained in its products were starting on breaking down and causing all sorts of issues that downright scare consumers.  After all, who wants a phone that could very well start on fire in your pocket?

The company also revealed that they are planning to roll out the much anticipated Galaxy Note 8 in late summer or early September. The new model will follow in the footsteps of the discontinued Galaxy Note 7. The company touts that it will be its most powerful handset yet. At 6 GB of RAM and a powerful Snapdragon 835 engine, the Galaxy Note 8 will certainly be something to take a serious look for Samsung diehards.

The new Samsung models will have their work cut out for them with the roll out of Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 8. Rumors are swirling however that Apple may have product delay issues with the iPhone 8, which is no doubt music to the ears of Samsung executives.
