Samsung Confirms Galaxy Note 7 Demand Better Than Expected


The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the newest smartphone in town and is one which seems to be doing extremely well, in spite of a limited time of being available since its initial release. While this is a Samsung flagship smartphone and that in itself is enough of a reason to suggest it will do well anyway, the 2016 Galaxy S7 models and the Galaxy Note 7 seem to be taking on a life of their own and are reported to be turning the tide on what seemed to be slowly sales for the South Korean company. However, while the Galaxy S7 (and Edge) pre-orders were impressive, reports do seem to be continually pointing to the Galaxy Note 7 being an even better seller.

In fact, this has also led to a number of reports coming through over the past few weeks which suggest that the global demand is so strong that the Galaxy Note 7 was seeing various delays in certain regions like Malaysia, the Ukraine and Russia. Now again today, Samsung has been reported confirming much the same in a statement given to Reuters.

According to the information coming out of Reuters, Samsung has reiterated the point that the global demand is playing on the company's ability to maintain its schedule for release in certain areas. Samsung is noted as explicitly pointing out that "as pre-order results for the Galaxy Note 7 have far exceeded our estimates, its release date in some markets has been adjusted". While this does come as further confirmation that the initial sales of the Galaxy Note 7 are doing better than even Samsung expected, it also does clearly point to this being a device which is likely to be selling extremely well. It stands to reason that Samsung will have been hoping for good sales in general and were likely prepared in the event of those hopes being realized, however the reports seem to keep coming through suggesting that those expectations are not only being met, but being eclipsed. Of course, none of the real firm numbers will be known until the device has been on the market long enough for Samsung to report back on just how well the Galaxy Note 7 is doing. Although, if the initial impressions are anything to go by, they should be good numbers.
