Sales of the Samsung Galaxy S8 across the globe have now exceeded five million units, new figures have revealed.
According to Samsung Electronics, sales of the handset are “going smoothly” all over the world.
Although it could not give detailed figures, it did however confirm combined sales are “already beyond five million units”.
The device was initially rolled out in the US, Canada and Korea in April, but has since been placed on the market in more territories, including many major European nations.
Samsung is planning to extend the rollout further this month to countries including China, taking the number of nations where the Samsung Galaxy S8 is available up to 120.
It will be interesting to see the official sales figures when they come in at the end of the April-June quarter.
Many analysts are predicting worldwide unit sales of the Galaxy S8 will be around the 20 million mark by the end of the quarter.
This could potentially put Samsung on course to realistically achieve in the area of 60 million unit sales during 2017 as a whole.
With the device commanding a price tag of almost £700, the Galaxy S8 offers a number of exciting and innovative features to justify the cost.
For instance, it boasts a curved front and back, along with an edge-to-edge display and a pressure-sensitive area that replaces the physical home button you'd find on many smartphones.
The S8 also carries a ten-nanometre processor – a world first – that promises speedy use, making it ideal for people who enjoy activities such as online gaming.
Users will also enjoy the 12Mp rear camera, which offers great features such as multi-frame processing. This lets users take multiple shots at the same time and combine them to create the best possible picture.
