Samsung has started mass production of the Galaxy S8 in its production factory in Vietnam and it expects to sell more than 10 million units of its 'next big thing', according to a report by Korea's Naver publication.

 

According to the report, Samsung will be producing 4.7 million units of Galaxy S8 smartphone in March and 7.8 million in April. This combines for a total of 12.5 million units for the first month of availability of the Galaxy S8, which will go on sale soon after the March 29th announcement event.

 

 

Samsung is expected to launch two models of the phone: the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, both with a curved, 'full-screen' display with the major difference between the two being their screen size and battery capacity.

 

At a press conference held in Barcelona this week, the firm confirmed to unveil Galaxy S8 on March 29, which is speculated to be held in New York.

 

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus could carry a price tag of $950 and $1050 respectively.

 

The two smartphones are rumoured to be launched in three colour variants, including Black, Gold, and Orchid Gray.

 

Keep in mind that while the Galaxy S8 is expected to feature a 5.8-inch display, it is said to have a taller, narrower display with a ~ 2 : 1 aspect ratio and the phone will still be roughly the size of the Galaxy S7, so it will be comfortable to use with a single hand. The S8 Plus, on the other hand, is expected to have a bigger display, yet remain around the same size as the S7 Edge.
