Sources say that Samsung plans for the current year to put 43 million copies of Galaxy S9 and S9 + in stores. This is 2 million more than the previous generation, but five less than in the case of the Galaxy S7 model in 2016.
Earlier analysts predicted similar figures: for example, Counterpoint Research believed that in the year will be released from 40 to 43 million Galaxy S9. At the same time, it is known that the novelty was taken cooler in comparison with last year’s model.
If 260 thousand Galaxy S8 were reserved for the first day of pre-orders, in the case of S9 the figure was only 180 thousand. Part of this can be explained by the fact that the Galaxy S8 was perceived more revolutionary compared to S7, rather than S9 – after the S8.
The flagship smartphone Samsung received the eight-core processor Exynos 9810 (Snapdragon 845 in versions for the US and China), 4 GB of RAM (6 GB in S9 +) and up to 256 GB of internal storage.
