Samsung will manufacture 17.2 million Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones by the end of April, according to Korean news outlet ETNews.
Samsung has had a lot of success with its Galaxy S lineup, particularly with the GS6 and GS6 Edge. Combined, they sold a total of 15.8 million units within their first three months of sale. Samsung is anticipating even better results this year, especially with the raving response received for the upcoming Galaxy S7 Edge.
Another problem Samsung experienced last year was that the Galaxy S6 Edge was always in short supply because of a 4:1 ratio (one Edge for every four Galaxy S6’s manufactured). This time around Samsung has reportedly moved to a 6:4 ratio to hopefully keep up with the demand this time around.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at its Unpacked event on February 21, just a day before Mobile World Congress began in Barcelona.
Currently, both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are up for pre-order at all the major carriers, slating both handsets for a March 11 launch.
