The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is expected to post-sales similar to that of its predecessor, industry watchers have said. The combined sales of the Galaxy Note 10 will reach 9.7 million units this year, similar to that of the 9.6 million units posted by the Galaxy Note 9 last year, according to industry tracker Counterpoint Research.
The figure, however, below the 10 million units posted by the Galaxy Note 8 back in 2017, Yonhap reported. An official from Counterpoint Research said the Galaxy Note 8 was able to post strong sales due to the suspended sales of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 7, whose production was suspended due to battery problems.
The success of the Galaxy Note 10, meanwhile, is especially crucial for Samsung Electronics as the company suffered a slump in its mobile business in the second quarter. Samsung Electronics’ IT and mobile division, which covers smartphones, saw its second-quarter operating profit nose-dive 41.6 percent on-year following the weaker-than-expected performance of the Galaxy S10 smartphone.
Besides, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will make its debut on August 7, as Samsung will be unveiling the flagship smartphone at its Unpacked event in New York. It is scheduled to take place at 4:00PM ET, which would be 1:30AM in India. Besides, a fresh report claims that Samsung has decided to host the launch event for India on August 20.
