Galaxy S9 Plus vs iPhone X vs iPhone 7 Plus

SK Telecom, the country's No.1 telecom firm by subscribers, saw the number of subscribers with Galaxy S9 phones fall by 577 on the first day of the release on Friday, from the figure for Galaxy S8 subscribers past year. It sold the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 previous year as well and they were initially perceived as being "Microsoft Edition" units of the flagships until Samsung set the record straight. After that, the Galaxy Note 8 was released too with the Android 7.1 Nougat OS.

The report reveals that the internal construction of Galaxy S9+ is remarkably similar to the Galaxy S8+. Which are comparatively less compared to the 260,000 units for the Galaxy S8 duo past year. Industry watchers have said that the Galaxy S9's performance hovered below expectations. The company, however, has not yet released any sale numbers for the country that could confirm the reports.

At MWC 2018 a few weeks ago, DJ Koh was enthusiastic about Galaxy S9 sales, saying that the phone will sell better than its predecessor.

There's nothing different about the units that Microsoft is selling through its stores.

Samsung has requested its local suppliers to set the production schedule of smartphone parts based on its target, The Bell reported, citing an industry source.

The article's sources say that Samsung has made quarterly plans for 12 million shipments in the first quarter, 13 million in the second, 10 million in the third, and eight million in the fourth. "The yield rate of the new flagship phones were taken into consideration".

Market analysts expect the company to make a sale between 40 million and 43 million units of Galaxy S9 in the current year. The entire smartphone business is expected to slow down this year, and all the top players are probably going to be impacted.
