Analysts from TrendForce believe that the growing hype around the iPhone 8 could adversely affect the sales of Samsung Galaxy smartphones and Galaxy S8 S8+. According to weather experts, the South Korean flagship will not be able to have a significant impact on the annual profit of the South Korean company as the unit will not compete with the iPhone 8.
Leading Android manufacturers Samsung, LG and Huawei have already started deliveries of its new flagship devices, but many users are willing to wait for the iPhone 8.
“Leading brands such as Samsung, LG and Huawei have already started deliveries of its flagship smartphones in 2017, the report says TrendForce. – However, demand in the second quarter is expected to relatively weak, as many consumers refrained from buying in anticipation of a new anniversary of the iPhone, which will debut in the third quarter.”
Forecast TrendForce seems very curious given the recent reports on high demand for the Galaxy S8. This week, a Samsung spokesperson said that pre-orders for the new product significantly exceeded the same indicators for Galaxy S7 Galaxy S7 Edge. And Galaxy S8+ was more popular than expected company, and she had to increase the production of “oversized” model.
In any case, too early to make any predictions. Although the iPhone 8 is expected to be the largest update in the history of the smartphone, it is unknown whether it is sufficiently attractive for the owners of Android-devices. A lot of rumors about the design and characteristics of the future flagship, but which ones are true?
