Samsung aims shipment of 60mln Galaxy S8 this year
In an attempt to come back from last year’s Galaxy Note 7 debacle, South Korean electronics giant Samsung is set to mark its space in the smartphone market with its 2017 flagship, the Galaxy S8.
According to reports, the company is planning to ship as many as 60 million units of the Galaxy S8 in this year.
“The mass production of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will start in March, when Samsung will begin rolling out 5 million units of the S8 each month after it receives electronic parts in February from its main vendors, including camera iris scanner module maker Partron and camera lens firm Sekonix,” an anonymous source was quoted by The Investor as saying.

This now proposed shipment goal is much higher than the flagship shipments the company has made in the past three years, NDTC Gadgets reported.
Meanwhile, recently the leaked images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 suggested the smartphone features a dual-edge curved display and also tipped that the handset may be a prototype unit which Samsung is working on.
