The South Korean giant, Samsung has officially announced their much awaited smartphones, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the market last month in Mobile World Congress 2018 at Barcelona, Spain. The pre-orders of the phones are comparatively lower than the Galaxy S8 phones. However, Samsung aims to ship 43 Million units of these new Galaxy S9 phones in this year.
According to reports from South Korea, the company aims high at selling the new Galaxy S9 phones in the market despite of their low pre-orders than the previous year’s Galaxy S8 smartphones on its first day.
Samsung sold out 41 Million units of their Samsung Galaxy S8 phones including the S8 Plus edition in the last year. For this year, the company aims to sell out two million more smartphones of the new flagship smartphones, i.e. Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones.
The information came from Korean Finance website which quotes about the Samsung’s planning for their new flagship smartphones. They aims really high for their new flagship smartphones. The reports have further described that the company has set the quarterly goals for the Galaxy S9 units and their sales in the global market.
According to sources, the company plans for 9 Million units in the first quarter, 13 Million units in the second quarter, 10 Million units in the third quarter and 8 Million units in the final quarter of this current year which makes it total 43 Million units for this year. The planning looks quite interesting and they should achieve their goal as people are now switching to premium smartphones rather than sticking to the mid-range devices.
If we compare this data to the previous smartphones, the company sold out 41 Million units of their Galaxy S8 phones and 48 Million units of the Galaxy S7 phones of the year 2016. The sales of the devices are decreasing year by year, still Samsung aims to sale out 43 Million units of the Galaxy S9 phones which shows how confident they are!
Samsung is running a variety of promotional offers in various regions around the world. The company is also giving discounts on the devices for the users who return back their older Galaxy S series phones. Since Samsung has planned well to sale out the Galaxy S9 phones, these promotional offers may attract more users of the existing Galaxy S series phones and the new ones at the same time. This might help the giant to fulfill their goal of selling 43 Million units of Galaxy S9 phones by the end of this year.
