Samsung is easily one of the biggest Android handset manufacturers around the world, and it didn't reach the top without putting insurmountable efforts into production of its devices. The South Korean tech giant with its massive portfolio of devices for every market segment has proven to deliver success for the company, and Samsung doesn't plan to stop any time soon. According to reports, the company is planning to supply five million devices of its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S7 during its initial launch.
According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be shipping in two variants. There's one with a standard flat-screen version that features a 5.2-inch display, and there's also a curved-screen model that features a 5.5-inch panel. The move follows the predecessor of the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S6, which also came in two variants.
Furthermore, the reports also said that the five million unit shipment will contain 3.3 million units of the standard version, while the curved variant of the Galaxy S7 will be occupying the remaining units. In perspective, Apple's iPhone 6S handsets managed to sell over 13 million units within three days of launch.
It is also important to note that recent leaks suggested that Samsung's latest flagship will also have four variants available. There's the recently reported standard and edged variant, while there will also be two other bigger variants with standard and curved panels.
In other reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is also expected to feature a pressure sensitive panel similar to what the S variants of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus featured. Furthermore, USB Type-C seems to also be in the equation, as well as a retina scanner for further security measures.
As far as the release date goes, reports said that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S7 sometime in February, which seems like the general speculation as of late.
