The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been delayed and has been keeping its customers waiting. It was expected that Samsung will release two phones at once, both of which is all set to compete against each other. The release of the two phones at once might bring in mixed results for the company.
In the earlier releases of the Samsung Galaxy S series, there weren't similarities between the phones. The S6 and the S6 Plus had varied features. The same is true for the S7 series too. However, the S8 and the S8 plus are quite similar to each other.
Both the phones will come with curved screens and it is just the physical size that will set them apart. It is not very clear how the mobile manufacturing giant will manage to pull out sales in both the models, reported Yahoo.
The company is already facing a major crisis due to the dip sales of the Note 7. The pressure on the company is high to generate sales and capture the market once again.
Even with its earlier phones, Samsung had estimated that it will be able to sell out a number of phones but ended up with a huge inventory of finished goods. With the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, It is very important for the company to estimate properly and come up with the right figure. The number of units that the company decides to produce will play a major role in determining the success of the new launch, reported Forbes.
The S7 and S7 Edge had the advantage with which it could look at the historical data of sales of S6 series. The S8 models do not enjoy that. The new phones resemble nothing in the Samsung's earlier versions. It is only after the model is released that it will be clear as to how well the customers take it despite the poor show by Note 7.
