Koh Dong-jin, president of Samsung’s handsets business, did not give a figure or disclose sales targets during a press briefing for the phones, which go on sale in South Korea and other markets tomorrow.
However he said that the S7s will help revive sales in China, the world’s top smartphone market where researchers say the Korean outfit is falling behind.
The Tame Apple Press is doing its best to knife the Samsung phone claiming that it only offers incremental upgrades and might not sell as well as last year’s Galaxy S6s. Of course it does not do the same thing when Apple products are mentioned.
In fact there are at least five things that the S7 can do which the iPhone can’t: Launch the camera by double tapping the home button, take clearer low-light photos without using flash, make a payment using your phone without Near Field Communication and charge your phone without plugging it in.
