Early predictions stated that the smaller 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S8 will outsell the bigger 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus, for the sole reason that the latter is too big for comfort. However, recent sales report begs to disagree. According to a recent claim rooting from South Korea, the positive reaction that the Galaxy S8 Plus received has led to Samsung increasing the production ratio for the said phone.
It was said that the previous production ratio for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus is 60-40. Now, with the positive feedback that the S8 Plus is receiving, reports say that Samsung has increased the production of the said phone to up to 45 percent. This number could also increase further before the phones' actual release by the end of April.
Nevertheless, this news has not been confirmed by Samsung. The company normally stays clear from the supply-related news. However, most of these new Galaxy S8 information come from relatively reliable sources such as supply chains.
As per Sam Mobile, there are a number of reasons why the consumers would want the larger Galaxy S8 Plus. One of the primary reasons could be its bigger battery size of 3500 mAh. The phone also has the larger-than-ever display screen from Samsung's lineup.
As far as the Galaxy S8 Plus' increase in production is concerned, The Investors says that this could also affect the production of the phone's parts from external suppliers. Some of the devices' parts come from different sources and these companies will most likely have to ramp up their productions as well. This will include camera modules and other major smartphone parts.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time that Samsung reportedly prepares for the soaring high Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus demand. Earlier before the S8's official launch, there were already words about the company's decision to increase the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus' initial production to around 20 million units more than last year's S7 series.
